Future Shop Canada: Captain Toad Treasure Tracker For The Nintendo Wii U (Pre Order) | Was $45 Now $35 (EXPIRED)

Good morning, my fellow gamers! Future Shop is having an awesome deal on their pre-orders for Captain Toad Treasure Tracker for the Nintendo Wii U system, and it won’t be around for very long! This Wii U game normally sells for $44.99, but with this Future Shop deal, you can purchase Captain Toad Treasure Tracker for $34.99! That’s $10 off – you can’t go wrong with that! You’ll also qualify for free shipping! This game is set to be released on December the 5th, so in a few weeks you’ll be able to enjoy playing this great fun-filled title! This deal will expire before midnight, so take advantage of this bargain while you can!

I have been waiting for the release of this Nintendo Wii U game since it was first announced early this year. My girlfriend and I were actually able to play a demo of this Captain Toad Treasure Tracker game at a Wii U kiosk that was located at a The Source location near our home, and it’s a lot of fun! It’s bound to be a game full of fun puzzles, cute graphics, and best of all, plenty of Toad, the pint-sized character that’s been seen in Mario games since Super Mario Bros. for the original Nintendo video game system, the NES.

These Captain Toad puzzles first made their appearance on the fantastic Wii U release, Super Mario 3D World. They were little mini games that you could play, and my main squeeze and I just loved them! In Captain Toad Treasure Tracker for the Nintendo Wii U, you’ll be able to enjoy so many more puzzles that are more complex than the ones that were in Super Mario 3D World, and you’ll get some added abilities, as well! If you’re looking for a cute game that both kids and adults could enjoy for your Wii U, then I highly recommend that you pick up this title.

If you pre-order Captain Toad Treasure Tracker for the Nintendo Wii U from Best Buy, it would cost $44.99. This deal expires before midnight, so get this while you still can! Happy gaming, my fellow deal hunters!

Best Buy Canada: Mario & Sonic At The Olympic Winter Games Sochi 2014 For The Nintendo Wii U | Was $50 Now $20

Good afternoon, my fellow gamers! Today’s deal at Best Buy is for Mario & Sonic At The Olympic Winter Games Sochi 2014 for the Nintendo Wii U, and it’s one that you should definitely check out! This game normally retails for $49.99, but you can now pick up this Wii U game for only $19.97 (plus $5 shipping)! This is a fantastic deal for a 1st-party Nintendo Wii U game! This item is on final clearance, so quantities are extremely limited. Once they’re gone, they’re gone!

Mario & Sonic At The Olympic Winter Games Sochi 2014 for the Nintendo Wii U is a fun game that’s fun for people of all ages! I own this game, and my girlfriend and I have a great time playing this Mario & Sonic game. It’s a great multiplayer game, too, so if you have 3 other friends that want to play with you, then you should totally pull out this game for the Wii U.

One particular mini game that’s included in Mario & Sonic At The Olympic Winter Games Sochi 2014 for the Nintendo Wii U that I had a lot of fun with was the figure skating activity. As my girlfriend and I held our Wii remote controllers, we had to act out a figure skating performance (that was played out on our TV screen by Bowser and Yoshi), and it was just too much fun. We couldn’t stop laughing as we had to spin around our living room, trying not to stumble during this hilarious process!

If you wanted to buy Mario & Sonic At The Olympic Winter Games Sochi 2014 for the Nintendo Wii U at WalMart in America, it would cost you $38.06 US. I’ve included a brief review of this game from a satisfied WalMart customer below:

This is a great game for four players. It’s a lot of fun and not too complicated for the people in the group that don’t play a lot.

Happy hunting, my fellow gamers!

Shoppers Drug Mart Canada: Game On Sale | Get 20X The Optimum Points On Video Games Today Only (EXPIRED)

Posted by on November 15, 2014 at 6:00 AM

Shoppers Drug Mart Canada: Game On Sale | Get 20X The Optimum Points On Video Games Today Only (EXPIRED)

Good morning, my fellow deal hunters! Shoppers Drug Mart is currently advertising a cool promotion on their website, and it just might pique your interest. If you pick up any video games tomorrow at a Shoppers Drug Mart location near you, you could get 20 times the Shoppers Optimum Points with your purchase (if you spend $50 or more)! If you don’t have a Shoppers Optimum Card, you could easily apply for one at a Shoppers Drug Mart location near you (and it’s free of charge). This can lead to some big savings, especially if you plan to purchase certain video games or consoles for Christmas, including the Microsoft Xbox One, Sony PS4, Nintendo Wii U, or Nintendo 3DS. You can find out just how much you can save by checking out the Shoppers Optimum Points calculator that’s on their website – click here to see how much you could save!

There are many great video games that you can save on during this one-day sale. It will only be valid today (Saturday November 15th), and it can help you get a huge amount of Shoppers Optimum Points that you could use for future purchases at Shoppers Drug Mart (yes, you could even use these optimum points to get more points once they show up in your account).

In fact, you could even spend $299.99 on a Wii U system today and get 20X the Shoppers Optimum Points for your purchase. This would translate to 60,000 Optimum Points, which equals to about $95 of credit that you could use (once it shows up in your account). So you could come back in a few weeks and use that credit on another video game that hasn’t been released yet, like the highly anticipated Super Smash Bros. U (which should retail for $64.99), which means that you’d still have about $30 in Shoppers Optimum Points to use! Now that’s a sweet deal.

This 20x Optimum Points promotion can also apply to other merchandise in the store (with select exclusions, which you could check out here.) Have fun today, Bargainmoosers – I hope you can all find some sweet video games and consoles at Shoppers Drug Mart today!

You really can’t go wrong with this deal, especially since you’ll qualify for free shipping with your purchase! If you only find 2 games that interest you, then you’ll be able to save 15% on those titles!

If you wanted to buy these games at another retail location this week, you wouldn’t be able to get a 15% or a 20% discount on your purchase, so Toys R Us is the place to be this week! Just be sure to get those games before they’re out of stock! I’ve included a brief review of Sunset Overdrive for the Xbox One from a satisfied Future Shop customer below:

Toys R Us Canada: Nintendo 3DS XL – Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Set | Was $200 Now $170

Posted by on October 4, 2014 at 9:30 AM

Toys R Us Canada: Nintendo 3DS XL   Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Set | Was $200 Now $170

If you’ve ever been intrigued to pick up a Nintendo 3DS XL system, this may be a great opportunity to do so while saving some of your hard-earned money! Today at Toys R Us, you can get the special Mario & Luigi: Dream Team version of the Nintendo 3DS XL for $169.97 – it typically costs $199.99. You’ll also qualify for free shipping!

This particular version of the Nintendo 3DS XL features some cute artwork on Mario and Luigi on it. Not only that, but it also has Mario & Luigi: Dream Team installed in it, so you’ll have a great game to play with your new 3DS!

I first had the regular version of the Nintendo 3DS. I eventually decided to sell it (don’t worry, I kept my games) so I can get this exact Mario & Luigi; Dream Team version of the 3DS XL. The bigger screens make a huge difference when you’re playing your games.

Though it may not be as portable as the original 3DS system, that didn’t really matter to me. All I know is that I can thoroughly enjoy great 3DS games like Zelda: The Ocarina Of Time 3D and Kid Icarus: Uprising much more on the significantly larger 3DS XL screens.

If you were to buy this special Mario & Luigi: Dream Team version of the Nintendo 3DS XL at Future Shop, it would cost you $199.95, and it’s $199.83 at WalMart. Listed below is a brief review of this system from a satisfied Future Shop customer:

I bought this 3DS because it had the game preloaded, it is a nice design and I like that it commemorates 30 years of Luigi. The game itself is nothing spectacular, but still entertaining.

I personally enjoy the Mario & Luigi: Dream Team game that comes with the system. It’s fun, and reminds me of Super Mario RPG for the Super Nintendo. Happy gaming, Bargainmoosers!

Nintendo eShop: Super Smashing Sale – More Titles On Sale Including Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze For $30

Posted by on September 27, 2014 at 9:00 AM

Nintendo eShop: Super Smashing Sale   More Titles On Sale Including Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze For $30

Now that the release of Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo 3DS is on the horizon, it’s the final week for Nintendo’s Super Smashing Sale. During these weekly sales, many old and new games that featured classic Nintendo characters that are in the new Super Smash Bros. title had their prices slashed, and this week is no exception. Until October the 2nd, you can save on a decent selection of titles on the Wii U and 3DS systems that feature Donkey Kong, Kirby, Pikmin, Pac-Man, and several others. In fact, you can get Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze for the Nintendo Wii U for $29.99 (regular price on the Nintendo eShop is $49.99). At Future Shop and Best Buy, that game sells for $54.99! Plus, since these games are all their downloadable versions, you can play the games that you want shortly after you purchase them!

There are some great games featured in this sale (including my favourite, Pikmin 3, which was $59.99 but is now $39.99). The other titles that you can save on during Nintendo’s Super Smashing Sale include Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D for the 3DS ($19.99, was $29.99), Kirby’s Dream Land 3 for the Wii U ($4.99, was $7.99), Animal Crossing New Leaf for the 3DS ($19.99, was $29.99), and even the original Donkey Kong for the Wii U ($3.49, was $4.99).

Between some of these all – time classics and Nintendo’s newer offerings, this is a decent sale for video game fans. I bought Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze at the beginning of this year, and it’s a lot of fun (after all, it plays like the Donkey Kong Country games for the Super Nintendo). You can even play with 2 players at the same time, which I found to be a fun experience. It has some stumping puzzles littered throughout the game as well, so it’s a fun, challenging game that will keep you intrigued.

I’ve included a review for Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze from a satisfied Best Buy customer below:

This game is literally flawless, from amazing gameplay, to wonderful music, to fantastic, striking visuals in HD on the Wii U. Literally can’t find a single thing wrong with this game. Every Wii U owner needs this. I am primarily an Xbox guy, but I picked up a Wii U last year and this game justified the purchase ALONE. 10/10 MUST BUY.

Check out this sale to see the full list of titles that you can save on for your Wii U and 3DS systems. Happy gaming, Bargainmoosers!

Best Buy Canada: $10 Off 2 Nintendo 3DS Games

Posted by on September 16, 2014 at 6:30 PM

Best Buy Canada: $10 Off 2 Nintendo 3DS Games

Shop now at Best Buy to save on Nintendo 3DS games. For a limited time, you get a $10 discount with purchase of two Nintendo 3DS games valued at $34.99 each or more.

Let’s face it, when you own any kind of video console of handheld device, you don’t just buy one game. Typically, one is bought either as soon as one is released or even as soon as one gets boring. So although you will be spending a little more in one shot by getting 2 or more games, this is an opportunity for saving in the long-term… or short term depending on how often you buy games! Another major plus is that you won’t have to check out numerous times if you want to take advantage of this discount on the purchase of games or more. I added Super Smash Bros four times to my shopping cart to see if the discount would work and a $20 price reduction was indeed awarded.

Speaking of which, Super Smash Bros is definitely a game that you should consider pre-ordering right now as you most likely won’t get it on sale anytime soon. It is set to be released in a little over two weeks on October 3rd 2014 and is the next instalment in a series of games by the same title that were originally released in 1999. Plus, by pre-ordering this game and getting another one, you will have time to finish the latter, to then move on to the former once it is delivered to your order in October!

A game I would recommend is definitely Super Mario Bros 2. It’ $34.99 and is in the same game style as the old Super Mario games that most of us have grown up with and have fond memories of! In fact, here’s what someone had to say about it on Amazon‘s site:

Compared to the first NSMB for both the Wii, and DS, I found this one just slightly more difficult in terms of gameplay, and finding all the secrets. It still went by far too quickly and easily for myself, and other family members.

Since Best Buy automatically ships all orders over $25 for free, you’re sure to get both games (or more) for free as well.

Nintendo: Super Smashing Sale – Several Titles On Sale Including Zelda: A Link Between Worlds For $30 (Expired)

Posted by on September 12, 2014 at 10:30 AM

Nintendo: Super Smashing Sale   Several Titles On Sale Including Zelda: A Link Between Worlds For $30 (Expired)

Nintendo is lining up all of their arms for the upcoming release of Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo 3DS. Their marketing team is hard at work to spread the word so that every man, woman, and child in North America will know that Super Smash Brothers is going to be huge! Well… let’s not get too carried away here. Either way, the game is on its way out, and Nintendo is celebrating this by having a sale on a number of their older titles for the Nintendo 3DS, and for the Wii U Virtual Console. You’ll be able to directly download these games unto your Nintendo 3DS or Wii U system, so you can play these games shortly after purchasing them!

You can click on the link above to check out the full list of 3DS and Wii U games that are on sale this week (this promotion will last until September 18). Some of the popular titles on sale include the excellent The Legend Of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds for the 3DS ($29.99 – was $39.99), the rare Kid Icarus: Uprising  for the 3DS ($24.99 – was $34.99), and even some classics like The Legend Of Zelda: A Link To The Past for the Wii U ($4.99 – was $7.99) and Mega Man X ($4.99 – was $7.99).

Though my first video game system was the original Nintendo, I especially fell in love with my Super Nintendo system. There were so many games that kept me occupied during those early years of my life, and they still hold up to this day. For instance, one of my favourite games of all time is included in this sale (The Legend Of Zelda: A Link To The Past), which I first played on the Super Nintendo system.

I still remember the day I got that game for my 7th birthday – I got home from my grandma’s house around midnight that night, because we were driving through a terrible snow storm! Thanks to my dad’s driving skills, we made it home without any issues. Of course, the first thing I did when I got home was – you guessed it, I played some Zelda! I was sent to bed after approximately 3 minutes, but I still got to try it out that night!

A great game in this sale is The Legend Of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds for the 3DS. It normally costs $39.99 at Best Buy and Future Shop, so you’ll be able to save $10 on this deal. I’ve listed a snippet of a review of this game from a satisfied Best Buy customer below:

I’m a huge fan of A Link To The Past and this game takes that to a whole new level making for a much more rich experience. I wish the other titles on the 3DS or Wii U for that matter were this good.

Happy gaming, Bargainmoosers – I hope you all enjoy your weekend!

Nintendo: Super Mario 3D World For Wii U Was $60 Now $40 (Expired)

Posted by on September 6, 2014 at 8:00 AM

Nintendo: Super Mario 3D World For Wii U Was $60 Now $40 (Expired)

It’s a wonderful time to be a Nintendo Wii U owner! After all, with an influx of popular games out for the system like Mario Kart 8 and Super Mario 3D World, it’s easy to see why many owners of the latest Nintendo system tend to be very loyal to the brand. One of the greatest games out for the Wii U (and in my opinion, one of the greatest Mario games of all time) is on sale for a limited time on the Nintendo eShop – you can download Super Mario 3D World directly on your Wii U console for just $40 – it normally costs $60! This game will easily make you a Nintendo fan once again!

Nintendo’s latest promotion is here to promote the impending arrival of their newest titles in the Smash Bros. franchise, Super Smash Bros. U and Super Smash Bros. 3DS. To increase awareness, Nintendo is discounting several classic (and newer) games in their catalogue each week, which includes Super Mario 3D World for the Wii U ($40) and Yoshi’s New Island for the 3DS ($30). To see a list of all the games that Nintendo has on sale this week, click here.

I originally purchased Super Mario 3D World for the Wii U last year, and I can easily say that it’s one of the greatest games I’ve ever played (definitely in my top 3). What really adds to the fun is the game’s fantastic multiplayer mode, where you can have up to 4 people playing at the same time!

Roaming through the vast 3D landscapes and stomping goombas with your friends is always a good time – in fact, I more than got my money’s worth out of this game, since I literally played it for months! I just had to try and find all of the game’s secret stars so I can unlock extra levels, and it was well worth it! I highly recommend this game for all Wii U owners, and if you don’t have a system yet, I’d also recommend that you buy one. Even if you already have an Xbox One or a PS4, try out this game at one of the many playable kiosks at retail locations, and I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.

If you get the physical copy of Super Mario 3D World, it typically costs $60 at Best Buy and Future Shop. Listed below is a brief review from a satisfied Future Shop customer:

This game is the reason I picked up a Wii U and I’m not regretting it. Great 3D gameplay like Mario Galaxy, but with 4-player cooperative / competitive multi-player. Cat suit adds awesome special moves. Plus, Mario in HD looks amazing!

Here’s to hoping that you have a great, Mario-filled weekend! Happy gaming, Bargainmoosers!

Nintendo.com Capcom Sale: Up To 60% Off Select Wii U & 3DS Games (Expired)

Posted by on August 29, 2014 at 11:00 AM

Nintendo.com Capcom Sale: Up To 60% Off Select Wii U & 3DS Games (Expired)

It’s safe to say that Nintendo’s Capcom is a game company that pleases both veteran and younger gamers. With a diverse range of titles in their library, such as Street Fighter, Resident Evil, and Phoenix Wright, many gamers clamour to hear about Capcom’s latest releases. Fortunately, Capcom has temporarily slashed the prices on some of their titles that are on the Nintendo eShop for both the Wii U and 3DS video game systems, allowing gamers to save up to 60% on both classic and newer titles. Remember, this sale will only be around until September the 4th at noon.

There are many great games included in this sale that I paid full price for, such as the excellent Ducktales: Remastered for the Wii U ($7.49, was $14.99) and Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition for the 3DS ($9.99, was $19.99). Though some of these games have been out for a while now, these are still some great deals. The retail copy of Ducktales: Remastered is getting tougher to find, and the Wii U version typically retails for $19.99 (it’s in stock on Amazon and costs $21.49). Some of these games can’t even be found in retail, since they’re download-only titles. For example, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies for the 3DS can only be downloaded on Nintendo’s eShop, and it’s on sale this week for $17.99 (regular price is $29.99).

There are even some virtual console classics, like Street Fighter 2 ($4.99, was $7.99) that you can enjoy on your Wii U system. I was always a huge fan of Capcom’s games – especially the Street Fighter series. I still remember that fateful day when my father surprised me with it when I was only six years old, and the fact that I was actually allowed to stay home from school and play it just made me one overjoyed youngster! However, the most outrageous part of this story is the fact that Street Fighter 2 for the Super Nintendo used to cost $99.99 plus tax at Toys R Us back in 1993! That’s a spicy meatball!

Here’s a brief review of Ducktales: Remastered from a satisfied customer on Amazon:

Clever dialogue, great voice casting and nice music in the background. Lots of fun! My son and I love to play this game.

Here’s to a great long weekend filled with plenty of video gaming, Bargainmoosers!

Nintendo.com: Buy Mario Kart 8 & Get a Free Downloadable Game

Posted by on June 2, 2014 at 11:30 AM

Nintendo.com: Buy Mario Kart 8 & Get a Free Downloadable Game

Are you looking forward to the new Mario Kart 8 game? I know the men and boys in my house definitely are! Simply buy any version of the Mario Kart 8 game, register your game, and you’ll get a code to get your free downloadable Nintendo game.

Until July 31st, buy your game and register it and you’ll get a code for your choice of one of the following games:

  • Super Mario Bros. U
  • Pikmin 3
  • The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Walker HD
  • Wii Party U

Those games each have a $39.99 value.

You can buy any version of the game to get your free downloadable game. If you buy the packaged version, find the Club Nintendo insert inside the game and enter the registration code on the Nintendo website. If you are buying the game from the Nintendo eShop, link your WiiU console to Club Nintendo before you buy Mario Kart 8 to get your free game. If you buy the Wii U console that includes Mario Kart 8, simply link your new Wii U console to your Club Nintendo account to register the game. As you can see, you’ll need a Club Nintendo account.

Once you’ve registered, login to your Club Nintendo account and select “select your free game” in your to-do list before August 31st, 2014. Once you get the code for that, enter your download code and play!

My boys have all of the games above except Zelda, which I think they would love. We are definitely going to take advantage of this offer as soon as possible. If you don’t have any of the games above, I highly suggest Wii Party U. It is a game I love playing with my family, with fun mini games that are easy enough for little kids, but difficult enough for adults.

I have also heard that Target is the best place to get the Mario Kart 8 game, as you’ll get a free wheel with your purchase. Mario Kart (the original) was my favourite game to play with my family as a kid and I can’t wait to play it with my kids now.

Wii U Deluxe Set & NintendoLand (Refurb) @ Nintendo Canada: Only $207

Posted by on May 12, 2014 at 9:30 AM

 

Wii U Deluxe Set & NintendoLand (Refurb) @ Nintendo Canada: Only $207

Did you know that Nintendo Canada has an online store, from which they also sell refurbished products at low prices? Well, I’ve spotted a deal on there, for a refurbished bundle of the Nintendo Wii U console, along with the NintendoLand game – it’s priced at only $200.

Standard shipping is $7, so brings the total to $207 plus taxes.

Even though this is a refurbished item, it still comes with a full one year warranty, so there’s nothing to worry about in that regard. Their refurb policy states this:

Although it may have minor cosmetic blemishes, it is guaranteed to be fully functional. We think you will find the standards for Authentic Nintendo Refurbished Products are VERY high.

Sounds good to me! And it’s quite a good saving on the MRSP too. For example, the Wii U console alone is $250 @ Best Buy, $300 @ Staples, $320 @ Amazon, $300 @ EBGames, $350 @ NCIX, $300 @ Chapters Indigo.

The box comes with quite a few things included, with the main aspects being:

  • Wii U console (32GB Internal Storage*)
  • Wii U GamePad
  • Nintendo Land game disc

There are other items included such as the sensor bar, you can see a full list when you click through.

While you can buy bundles from $350 @ Costco, from $300 @ The Source, that kind of thing… it might be worth comparing those type of prices to see if it’s bundled with a game you are interested in. But if you’re just looking for the basic console and are happy with Nintendoland to get you started, then this price from Nintendo is very good. And the NintendoLand Bundle seems to be around $30 to $60 alone.

The Source: 3DS XL + Mario & Luigi Dream Team for only $170!

The Source: 3DS XL + Mario & Luigi Dream Team for only $170!

Save $70 on a 3DS XL + Mario and Luigi Dream Team from The Source!

First off, the retail on this  seems to be $199.99 and you’re getting it for only $169.99 so I guess maybe you’re only saving $30. But the game is $40 by itself and the console is $200 by itself. Technically if you bought the game and the console separately you’d save $70 by getting this deal. Regardless, it’s a good deal. The 3DS is the clear king of the handhelds right now and Mario, well, Mario games are Mario games. Not much else to say about either of these things…

…but I need to fill space so let’s talk about Mario and Luigi Dream Team. I am an RPG guy. I have played primarily RPGs during my life as a gamer. Out of all the RPGs I’ve played, some of the best are Mario RPGs. I’ve played three RPGs in the Mario universe and they have all been great. There might be some bad RPGs in the Mario world but I haven’t seen them and from the reviews on this one, Mario and Luigi Dream team is not one of them.

It has a solid 8/10 on meta critic and from the gameplay videos I’ve watched it looks like the classic blend of platformer and RPG what any fan or Mario RPGs have come to love. If you haven’t had the pleasure of an RPG with your favourite Mario characters this is a great way to dive right in to a great handheld console and a fantastic game for an awesome price.

Oh, and I almost forgot, you get a 3DS XL with a cool Mario and Luigi design on it! Pretty neat.

Shipping is free.

Nintendo: Get Wii Fit U For Free With Purchase Of Fit Meter

Nintendo: Get Wii Fit U For Free With Purchase Of Fit Meter

If you had a Wii, but then got a Wii U, you can still work out using your Wii Fit game, or you can also get Wii Fit U for free.

I have the Wii Fit game with balance board from my old Wii. We now have the Wii U and I’d love to try the newer and improved version available for Wii U, and I can actually do it for free. Here’s what you need to do. First of all, download the game from the Nintendo eShop and you’ll get it free for 31 days, so you can try it out and decide if you love it. You’ll use your existing balance board to do the activities (or you can probably buy one from Kijiji if you don’t already have Wii Fit). If you decide you like it, simply buy the Fit Meter for $19.99 at Best Buy, $19.83 at Amazon or you can get it from a bunch of other stores for around the same price. Do your research. You’ll then get to keep the game forever! You just have to sync the meter with your free version to get the game for good.

The Fit Meter is actually really great because you don’t have to just use it in your living room while playing Wii U. It counts your steps, measures intensity and altitude changes so that the calorie counter knows exactly how many calories you really burn depending on how hard you are really working, rather than the distance you’ve gone. Once you’ve synced it to your Wii U, you’ll get accurate readings and graphs so you can track your progress. Take advantage of the fun challenges to get you moving. Wii Fit U lets you have up to 12 profiles, but everyone will need their own fit meter. What’s really cool: your dog can get one too so you can manage his/her exercise needs.

I’m going to to download the free trial right now to help me with my fitness goals. I love that I can weigh myself and the game keeps track of it for me, telling me how much I’ve gone up or down so I can improve.
