Obviously picking up on the Japanese success of the Wii Fit game, due to launch in the UK in April, Ubisoft has announced the release of My Health Coach: Weight Management for the Nintendo DS in summer 2008.

Developed under the guidance of both a fitness coach and a nutritionist, My Health Coach: Weight Management is described as "a new and innovative way to help you maintain a healthy lifestyle and lose weight".

My Health Coach: Weight Management will include an exclusive accessory - a pedometer which counts the steps you walk each day and slots into the DS to transfer your stats.

Ubisoft says My Health Coach is a fun, short and rewarding method to help you and guide you, step by step, to a healthier more balanced lifestyle.

The promise is that after just 10 to 15 minutes playing each day, the coaching sessions, daily challenges, mini-games and quizzes will "leave you feeling the difference".
