Segway PT to feature in Wii Fit Plus

"The thrill" of riding a Segway PT will feature in Nintendo's just announced Wii Fit Plus game, the companies have revealed at E3.

Segway has been collaborating with Nintendo on a module within the video game that will use the Wii Balance Board accessory and Wiimote "to simulate what it's like to ride a Segway x2 in a virtual environment".

In the game, the players' Mii character will zip around the levels trying to pop balloons and then ultimately tag a run-away mole-like creature that comes up out of the ground.

"It's been a lot of fun working with Nintendo on this game", said Eric Fleming, Segway's director of creative services.

"There are so many people who are curious about what it's like to ride a Segway PT. This game is the closest you can get to that smile-inducing experience without actually riding one".
