Turn any Wii game into a work out.

Doncaster, UK – 30/03/2011

Video game accessory experts BLAZE and Fitness First are delighted to confirm that the Nintendo Wii “U-Move” controllers are now in stock!

The U-Move Nintendo Wii nunchuck controller enables you to introduce a whole new level of realism to your Wii games. When using the U-Move controller you are required to move (by either jogging on the spot or by moving your arms around) to generate “energy” for your on-screen character – when you aren’t “moving” your thumb stick becomes “disabled” and your character will stop moving! In effect, you become part of the game and need to “run” if you want your character to run!

The U-Move controller works with ANY Nintendo Wii game that uses the thumb stick to control movement, below are just a few examples of games which you can introduce a new level of realism to on your Nintendo Wii console:
