popular “Iwata Asks” series on Wii.com has included interviews with
legendary Nintendo video game designer Shigeru Miyamoto about Super Mario
Galaxy, and with Masahiro Sakurai, the creative force behind the upcoming
Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

Today Mr. Iwata tackles what is sure to be one of the hottest topics for
Nintendo in 2008: the highly anticipated product, Wii Fit. The first
installment of a multi-volume series runs today. To read the transcripts, log

Wii Fit comes with the Wii Balance Board and is due to hit U.S. stores in the
second quarter of this year. Wii Fit sold through more than 1 million units
within its first month of launch in Japan, and it further demonstrates
Nintendo’s belief in providing interactive entertainment that is accessible to
everyone.
