DS gymnastics game looks too dangerous to try at home
That's right, folks. Japan will be seeing a game starring exercise celebrity Hiromichi Sato, aptly titled Hiromichi Oniichan no Oyako Taisou Navi. The game "encourages" kids and their parents to be active by showing them how to do different exercises.
We're pretty skeptical about exercise via DS being effective at all, but we suppose it's all a matter of motivation. Still, will children really be tricked into performing these exercises by thinking it's a game? Wouldn't kids prefer to join the baseball team or something?
