Anyone come across these marketing slides yet? First one is Wii Fit Plus, the second game didn't have a title that I could find. Feel free to lock if old.

Wii Fit Plus:




Wii Cycling game + pedal controller:



EDIT TO CLARIFY:

Slides originated from a marketing survey. Besides those two games there was another title that sort of looked like that EA active fit game (with the red ribbon).

Not sure which company the pedals come from but the survey did include a video showing off the game and pedals in use. Game looked pretty far along, so I would be surprised if it isn't announced/released by the end of the year. I don't have the vid, and I didn't actually do the survey so I don't have many more details. Sorry. Just thought the images would be interesting.

Is the pedal controller being used for a... barbecuing minigame? O_o

I'm happy for the designer though. Miyamoto originally called his cycling game for Wii Sports Resort incredibly dull and now it's its own game with a custom peripheral. :lol

I don't think that the pedal controller is an official accessory, that game looks like a 3rd party game so don't count on it being used by anyone else.

The Wii is such a deceptively expensive console, not only is the hardware pricey considering the technology but there are all these additions and extras. Source looks fake though, the presentation is horrific.

Come on guys, there's no way this is real. Look closely at the screens. They look terrible! Also, compare the models in the second to the first. The models in the second screen look like average joes.

I'm surprised no-one's churned out a plastic pedal attachment to plug the Wiimote w/M+ and Nunchuk into, for use with Cycling in WSR. Unless the controls make it impractical?

You know, as someone who is kind of getting worried about the amount of peripherals Nintendo releases...

...assuming the pedal controller is real, I'd totally get it. If a great game came along with the pedal controller, which it likely would, then I'd be pedaling every day almost, and as someone who is often too lazy to work out on my own, it'd be great.

...but still. While I don't have a problem with switching to WM+ for one game, sideways Wii remothe for another, the classic controller for a third, and the Nunchuck for a different game, I'd imagine that some would just get confused or annoyed by it all. Plus, I don't even have the balance board or upcoming vitality sensor.

Looks fake and doesn't look like something Ninty would be building. For now I'll call this fake.

It seems too shoddy of a build quality-wise for something that we've come to accept from Nintendo.
