NewU Fitness First Wii game coming to US as My Fitness Coach 2

My Fitness Coach (based on Yourself!Fitness for PS2 and Xbox) is a well-acclaimed Wii exergame from 2008.  It’s really little more than a programmable workout DVD – the controller is only used to keep your stats and set up your preferences – but it got much better reviews than some other “interactive” exergames, showing that sometimes no interactivity at all is preferable to bad interactivity.

Now a sequel, My Fitness Coach 2: Exercise and Nutrition, has been announced for January, and it’s another relabeling of an existing game, NewU: Fitness First which was never released in the US.  Reviews of NewU are very positive, although one reviewer still likes Wii Fit and EA Sports Active better.

MFC2 adds balance board support which a lot of people wanted for the first game.  It also uses actual videos of trainers instead of computerized avatars to demonstrate the exercises, and it adds nutritional planning and recipes
