Konami Ships Let's Yoga! and Lets Pilates!
No fire breathing and teleportation here, sadly.
The DS has brought us all sorts of genres we thought we'd never see go mainstream in the west, and these latest games from Konami are continuing this fine tradition.
Let's Yoga! and Let's Pilates! are more or less instructional games; although, it may be more appropriate to call them instructional applications. There isn't a lot of actual gameplay to be found, rather, they contain dozens of instructions and videos regarding yoga poses and pilates exercises regarding strength, flexibility, endurance and coordination. The idea is that they'll help you build your body without gaining muscle mass (which should also clearly point to who the target audience is).
"Konami has been dedicated to providing fitness solutions to gamers and non gamers everywhere, as evidenced by our initiative to incorporate DanceDanceRevolution into the Physical Education programs in public schools and fitness centers across the country," said Anthony Crouts, Vice President of Marketing for Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc., "We believe that both Lets Yoga! and Lets Pilates! fit well with our current initiative to incorporate health-conscious videogame content into our product lineup."
Both are available now at retailers for $29.99.
