Wii Fit U is apparently getting a whole lot sweatier, according to Reggie, as there’ll be new events, new exercise routines and a new Fit Meter peripheral to help reinvent Wii Fit all over again.

This new instalment for Wii U will feature more than 20 new activities and exercises that integrate the unique features of the Game Pad and the Wii Balance Board. One of the new exercises involves sitting on the Wii Balance Board and sliding down a icy track in a sled at breakneck speeds.

You can also use the Fit Meter to record the rest of daily your exercise routine that takes place outside your living room. It can be used as a pedometer to record the number of steps you take as well as the amount of elevation you’ve climbed, and everything can be synced up with the Wii U console to show how active you are throughout the day.

As shown last year, single-screen activities can also be played using the Game Pad without turning on the TV, allowing you to check personal information like your weight without having to display it on the big screen.

You’ll also be transfer your previous save data to Wii Fit U.
