Published: May 20, 2009 9:53 AM PDT
Nintendo Co. this week said that it will release Personal Trainer: Walking to the Nintendo DS handheld on May 26.
The latest entry in the Personal Training series will count, measure, and record steps throughout the day. The game will subsequently create a series of charts and activities to reveal "life rhythm" patterns.
Two Activity Meter accessories are included with each copy of Personal Trainer: Walking.
Unlike ordinary pedometers, Activity Meters count and record steps during a given period of time and can be synced to send data wirelessly to a Nintendo DS or Nintendo DSi system.
Activity Meters can store up to seven daysí worth of information. Up to four people can store their individual results on a single Personal Trainer: Walking game card.
Additionally, users can import customized Mii characters from the Wii console.
Personal Trainer: Walking carries an MSRP of $49.99.
