More On: Wii Fit U

If you'd like a free trial month of Wii Fit U, your chance is almost over. Nintendo has been running the promotion for a while now, but on January 31st your chance to get a free month of Wii Fit U expires. All you need is a Wii balance board to download the software from the eShop. As an added bonus, you can keep the software essentially at a huge discount, if you download the demo, but a Wii Fit Meter accessory for $20 and then sync the software to the Fit Meter. That's not a bad deal, considering the game is $50 by itself at retail, $90 in the balance board bundle and $30 for the full Eshop download.
