Wii Fit Races to 1 Million Sales in Japan

After being on sale for just a month in Japan, the Wii Fit exercise package has clocked in 1 million sales in Japan.

Japanese business news source Nekkai reported that the hardware and software bundle hit the million mark only a month after its December 1 debut.

Introduced by Nintendo luminary Shigeru Miyamoto at E3 last year, the product highlights once again the company’s efforts to broaden the scope of its player base by incorporating casual and non-gamers.

The bundle comprises one peripheral, the Wii Balance Board, and corresponding software that simulates an exercise workout. Several dozen training routines are available and statistics, like body mass index, can be tracked.
