Nintendo has opened a website and released screens of Aruite Wakaru Seikatsu Rhythm DS,
or Personal Trainer: Walking,
the walking trainer that includes a wireless pedometer and uses Miis. As it turns out, this game, which will probably
be somewhat of a flagship product for Nintendo, is being developed by Creatures, Inc., codevelopers of the Pokémon
games, as well as the first two Mother
games, and current home of Metroid
and Kid Icarus
composer Hirokazu "Hip" Tanaka (he's the president!)
can record walking data and generate all kinds of stats for four participants, which it does at the end of the day. However, it only includes two pedometers. Extras will be available for 1,800 yen ($17.71).

This sounds really cool. But as a person who walks obscene distances in the course of an average day, will there be benefits for me? Or is it solely aimed at the average person who can barely be buggered to get up and walk to the fridge?
