LARKSPUR, CA— November 16, 2010 – Deep Silver, the games label of Koch Media GmbH, today announced they will publish in North America NewU Mind Body Yoga & Pilates Workout for the Wii™ system, developed by Lightning Fish, the creators of one of the highest-rated fitness video games to date, the critically acclaimed Get Fit with Mel B.
NewU Mind Body Yoga & Pilates Workout utilizes the technology of Wii MotionPlus™ and the Wii Balance Board™ accessory to track program users’ movements through a yoga and Pilates program designed to meet their specific goals. Unlike many programs offered, NewU isn’t just a glorified workout video or minigame collection – it provides real-time feedback based on the performance of each move, offering encouragement and instruction at every step. What’s more, NewU uses video of professional trainers instead of cartoon avatars to ensure that users receive the best possible instruction in achieving strength & balance with over 115 yoga & Pilates exercises.
“We’re thrilled to bring yet another fantastic fitness title to North American users,” said Geoff Mulligan, Chief Operating Officer for Deep Silver. “Get Fit with Mel B has been an enormous success on PlayStation 3 and now we’re bringing the same level of quality to Wii. NewU is perfect for busy people to meet their fitness aspirations as well as Yoga and Pilates gurus with the time (and strength!) to invest in the perfect Firefly pose.”
NewU Mind Body Yoga & Pilates Workout will be available exclusively for Wii in North American stores on December 7, 2010, for a suggested retail price of $29.99. It is rated E for Everyone by the ESRB. For more information, visit http://www.deepsilver.com
