When Nintendo first announced Wii Fit and the Wii Balance Board accessory at this year's new-look E3, reports suggested that third parties (gaming and non-gaming) were clambering over the device with ideas of how to use it in upcoming titles. However, no word of this has been mentioned since - until now. Namco's Family Ski will be playable with the weight-scales-alike accessory.
The discovery was made in a scan for the title in which the Wii Balance Board is clearly pictured. Skiing, snowboarding and skateboarding titles are amongst the first ideas that spring to mind when wanting to incorporate the Wii Balance Board into games, so Nintendic isn't too surprised at the revelation - very good news, though.
