Ubisoft has announced it will publish My Health Coach: Weight Management for Nintendo DS in summer 2008. The title, which Ubisoft developed in its Montreal studio with the input of both a fitness coach and a nutritionist, includes a special pedometer peripheral that counts users' daily steps. Ubisoft says it designed My Health Coach: Weight Management as an "engaging and fun method to help reach and maintain a proper balance between the food you eat and the physical exercises you perform." Gameplay includes coaching sessions, daily challenges, mini-games and quizzes designed to motivate and reward users for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. The pedometer accessory is designed to connect to the DS and transfer steps taken into the personalized health program, tracking distance traveled. In addition to daily physical challenges, the hints, trivia and games involved are aimed at educating players about proper nutrition and exercise habits.
