Why did Nintendo create Wii Fit, a piece of software based on the idea of health?
"Hello, everyone. My name is Satoru Iwata, President of Nintendo Co., Ltd. As you may already know, some time ago I began conducting a series of interviews explaining the vision behind Wii. Now I'd like to continue that process to help explain the thinking and planning behind our new product, Wii Fit.
Over the course of the next few weeks we will hear from those who were actually involved in the development of this title. Given that I will be interviewing my own employees, I admit this is a somewhat interesting experiment, but by talking face-to-face with them, I hope to convey why we believe this is such an important product.
There are many insights that only these key developers will be able to recount. I hope you enjoy these interviews and please look forward to Wii Fit as it enters markets in the west later this year.
