Nickelodeon Fit Jumps Into Exergaming (E3)

Buried under the hundreds of other press release at E3, 2K Play and Nickelodeon have developed the first child-based exergame for Wii Fit. In coordination with PE expert Jackie Goodway (Chair of NASPE's Active Start committee), Nickelodeon Fit is based on the FITT principles of exercise (frequency, intensity, type, and time).  I always add another F principle, fun.  Will it be in this game or will this simply be another eFitness title like EA SPORTS Active, Gold's Gym Cardio Workout, or will we actually see some game elements in terms of story, plot, or narrative?  Hopefully Dora, Diego, Kai-Lan, Backyardigans can get our youngest generation jump roping, hula hooping, and moving more towards our daily goal of 60 minutes of physical activity.
