Wii software line-up 2009

Nintendo has revealed its launch line-up for the first quarter of 2009 and it looks like there's a few familiar faces and concepts coming our way.

Following in the footsteps of Wii Fit comes another family-friendly title aimed this time at getting us all up and walking (Oh God, do we have to, I'm tired?) Walk with Me! is due for release on February 20th and will come packaged with two pedometers which users can carry around with them wherever they go. The more steps you do, the more you'll be rewarded when you plug in the pedometer. Rewards come in the form of games, including allowing you to “draw” a picture of a global landmark after you've achieved 1000 steps. Once the picture is completed a piece of trivia is unlocked.

No doubt it will sell well, even if it does sounds like the most boring game on earth.

The most exciting launch news is that the New Play Control! range (updated Gamecube titles) will kick off early in 2009 and will include the likes of Pikmin on February 6th, Mario Power Tennis, Metroid Prime and Donkey Kong Jungle Beat.

Check out the rest of the Q1 2009 line-up and see if there's anything that takes your fancy.
