Nintendo fights obesity

I remember growing up and my mom telling me how unhealthy it was to play video games instead of going outside. But times have changed! Now, Nintendo has continued the fight against fat with its new game “Walk it Out!. As you walk, you can hear popular songs like The Black Eyed Peas‘ “Boom Boom Pow” and Demi Lovato‘s “La La Land,” as well as chose an option to see the words on the screen.

Another great thing about this game is you can do it with a partner walking right next to you. Listen up, Nintendo! Let’s combine two of the greatest things ever: exercise and Super Mario Bros. If I could walk around Mario’s world I would ditch my XBOX360 in a heartbeat!
