Nintendo UK has released the list of DS and Wii titles planned in for early 2009, with a whole host of interesting games on the way, along with one quirky 'keep fit' style title for the DS, called Walk with me! Do you know your walking routine?"

"Put a spring in your step and help to enrich your life in 2009," promises Nintendo, in what is clearly a perfectly timed announcement to remind us all that we will need to launch our annual guilt-fuelled attempts at dieting and exercising next month.

"A good active walking routine is recognised as an important part of a balanced and healthy lifestyle. Now Nintendo's Walk with me! can help you to get in tune with your personal walking regime, compare it with friends, family or even your pet, and see how you compare to walkers across the globe!"

Latest in lifestyle software

At least Nintendo's "latest lifestyle software" doesn't sound as taxing as Nike+ or Samsung's miCoach – slightly more hardcore 'keep fit tech' that requires you to jog and (God forbid) break into a sweat.

Intriguingly, the DS software comes packaged with two specially designed called Activity Meters which measure your daily steps minute by minute.

Nintendo's release continues: "Slim and convenient, the Activity Meter will fit into your bag or pocket as you walk and will measure your activity through the day. You can set daily walking targets with a basic setting of 3,000 steps which can be increased each day to suit your activity levels."

Take on the family dog

Transfer the data from your Activity Meter to your DS to track the progress of up to four users and/or compare with your mates or other members of your family. Or the dog!

There are also world walking rankings set to be released each weekend, along with the requisite mini-games to help motivate you to walk, such as Space Journey in which you get to, "post your own step data to combine it with users around the world and create a world step count… used to plot a virtual walk across the solar system.

"The distance between planets has been calculated in steps and you will see graphically how you and other world users are doing on your journey through space."

Walk with me! Do you know your walking routine? launches across Europe on 20 February 2009. For more on Nintendo's 2009 DS and Wii line-up head over to Nintendo.co.uk
