Wii Fit (US) is here. Its not as widely available as other games so you will need to do some walking to find one. It’s retail price here is much cheaper than in Singapore, so get it here if you can find one (if you are wanting to get one).

It was here several months ago in the Japanese version, but as I dont read Japanese, I have not bought that version. I will be collecting one unit soon and looking forward to testing the unit out.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl (US) won’t play on Wiis with dirty lens, Nintendo offers fix. March 11, 2008

US Wii gamers are faced with the same problem Japanese gamers faced with Nintendo’s hottest title, Super Smash Bros. Brawl. As reported in Japan early February, Wiis with “dirty” lens are unable to read the dual layered DVD thats stores Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
To help solve this, Nintendo of America have offered to collect and clean the dirty lens, on their expense. All you have to do is fill up the form here, and wait while its being collected, cleaned and returned to you.
So all it will cost you is NOT having the Wii to play on while its being cleaned.

Japanese Super Smash Bros. Brawl disc read error on Wii. February 4, 2008

Nintendo of Japan have issued a statement about reported disc read errors for the game. According to the statement, Nintendo has received complaints from Super Smash Bros. Brawl buyers of the Wii being unable to read their newly bought disc, or of videos chopping up during playback. These users claim to have had no such problems with past games.

Nintendo then did a study, and concluded that the problem arises from dust building up on the Wii laser lens. As Super Smash Bros. Brawl uses a dual layer DVD (the touted D9), the disc is more sensitive to dirty lens. A fix to this problem is to clean the Wii laser lens but its not something regular Wii owners can’t do on their own.

To fix this, Nintendo of Japan have offered to clean Japanese Wiis for free and even pay for the shipping fees. All you have to do is ship your Wii, warranty card and a copy of Super Smash Bros. Brawl (to prove you actually bought the game, and not simply wanting a free service) to Nintendo’s service center in Kyoto. Only drawback, you lose your Wii for one week while Nintendo cleans your lens.

Be aware, please don’t send in your modded Wii and expect a free service, ya?

For the benefit of the few of you who don’t know this fact, Wii Fit, the fitness game with a balance board, have sold over a million units in Japan since its debut on Dec 1, 2007.

Now the rest of the world will get to work their flabby muscles on the same balancing boards. Wii Fit is dated for release in April 2008 for the US markets and June 2008 for the PAL (EU) regions.

Now where have I placed my workout clothes…?

Update: Corrected Japan launch date, from 2008 back to 2007. Thnx to concerned citizen and xtrocious for correcting my time travelling exploits.
