[E3 2008] Active Life: Outdoor Challenge Activity Clips

Now here’s a Wii mini-game title that I’m actually mildly interested in trying out. Namco Bandai’s Active Life: Outdoor Challenge combines simultaneous use of the Wii Remote and a bundled-in dance pad (or the “Active Life Mat” in fancy terms) to get you up and using your whole body to compete in activities like log jumping, rope climbing, hurdles and so on. In total there’ll be over a dozen different activities, seven of which you can get an early peek at in the following series of gameplay clips (not all the clip labels are the official titles, just so you know). Watch for it to ship in September.
