Could this be Gold’s Gym Cardio Workout 2?
While searching for any updates on the Billy Blanks Wii game slated for Japanese release this year, I came across the website of the company making it, Rocket Company. This is the same company that made Shape Boxing, which was translated on this side of the ocean as Gold’s Gym Cardio Workout, and well received. I saw that just last month, they released Shape Boxing 2 in Japan. You can view a trailer on the Japanese Amazon page for the game.
The gameplay looks very similar to the original Shape/Gold’s Gym CW, but with more J-pop-ish music and a “world tour” mode. It’s getting good reviews from Japanese buyers, and while I’m just not that into boxing in general, I bet American fans of GGCW will welcome a sequel. I have no idea if or when Shape Boxing 2 will be released here, but I’ll keep an eye out for it.
No news about Billy, however.
