Publisher Majesco is once again partnering with the professionally in-shape Jillian Michaels, announcing Jillian Michaels' Fitness Ultimatum 2010 for the Wii and Jillian Michaels' Pocket Trainer 2010 for Nintendo DS. Ultimatum issued! Again!
Either Ms. Michaels was unhappy with the results of Wii owners living up to her 2009 ultimatum, or publisher Majesco is looking to profit further from slovenly Wii Balance Board owners. The first Jillian Michaels Wii game went on to move more than 600,000 units, so I'm simply guessing it's the latter.
Majesco CEO Jess Sutton says, via press release, that the DS version is being created in order to "keep up with today's on-the-go lifestyles." Hey, I have an "on-the-go" lifestyle! Maybe this is for me!
New to the 2010 ultimatum is are new workout modes, including the six-month long "Fitness Resolution" feature and "Exercise with Jillian," giving you one-on-one time with the titular trainer. Majesco also promises improved motion tracking, but does not promise Michaels-esque washboard abs.
Jillian Michaels' Fitness Ultimatum 2010 will have to compete with both Wii Fit and EA Sports Active for fitness dollars when the game is released this Fall.
