Segway and Nintendo Team Up on Wii Fit Plus Game
Players Experience the Fun of a Virtual Segway x2 Ride!
“It’s been a lot of fun working with Nintendo on this game,” said
To control the game, a player stands on the balance board while holding the remote in his or her hands (like gripping a handlebar). To move, the rider keeps his feet firmly planted as he shifts his weight forward or back. The balance board senses these motions and the virtual Segway x2 responds on-screen. To turn left or right, the player tilts the Wii Remote in the direction she’d like to go. A combination of this activity enables you to go wherever you’d like to go within the game — similar to what you’d do if you were riding an actual Segway x2.
The module is one component of the greater Wii Fit Plus suite that is a sequel to the immensely popular Wii Fit video game, available exclusively for the Wii(TM) console from Nintendo. The game is expected to be available later this year through Nintendo Authorized Resellers worldwide.
