The Power Pad Returns

Bandai Namco announced today the most unexpected of classic gaming revivals. The company will be bringing back the Family Trainer series for the Wii. The first game, Family Trainer Athletic World, will see Japanese release in 2008.

Originally released for the Famicom back in 1986, Family Trainer was notable for its included mat controller. Placed on the floor, this peripheral could detect foot movements, allowing players to get a workout as they played. The game was brought over to America under the name Power Pad.

The story is too old to be commented.
