Atari will release this in September 2008, it comes with a mat which allows two players to interact. Considering the success of the Wii Fit, I can see Nintendo playing Family Trainer as their Xmas star present, with all the well known speculation with low availability and prices staying at RRP or higher! The release price for this has been announced as £49.99, so the Amazon pre-order seems a bargain if you like this kind of thing and you don't want to miss out.

Family Trainer lets all the family and friends get physical by engaging the whole body in a variety of easy-to-understand, fast-paced and wildly entertaining activities. Family Trainer is scheduled for European release in September 2008.

The game includes the specially designed Family Trainer mat controller which, when combined with the Wii Remote, lets players get totally physical in a series of crazed challenges. Unlike other games for the Wii which only focus on the arms, Family Trainer gets the feet involved too for total body gameplay. Simple controls and intuitive play make the game easy to just pick up and play, and let players of any age get involved, get physical and have maximum fun.

There are over a dozen frantic single and multiplayer challenges to choose from all based on outdoor challenges amusingly interpreted for the world of Family Trainer, such as river rafting, mine karting, log jumping, rope skipping and much more. The activities take place in a variety of colourful locations including jungle forests full of ancient ruins, a haunted mansion complete with hordes of zombies, and a fairytale world where riding on toys and floating amongst the clouds is the order of the day.

Players can challenge friends or family members on the same mat, or cooperate together, for example trying to balance a runaway mine kart as it hurtles round a gravity defying track. Players can track their progress and set new records for their friends and family to beat, bringing a dose of healthy competition into the madcap mix.

This just looks like 2 dance mats fused together.... Anyone concur?

"Atari" and "must have" don't go together.

Same here. The ones that have sold out have all been Nintendo products, ie Wii Fit, Mario Kart, Wii Play, Links Training. I wouldn't start preordering these in bulk just yet if I were you!

You can always send them back if they're not as great or popular as predicted!

Not gunna pre judge this, but it is a hot deal as Zavvi have it at £38, and Play.com £39.99
To get an idea of what it might be like.....take a look here.
Then you can make up your own mind if you want to take a chance on it.

Then just click on LAUNCH PLAYER under the small movie.

Its a 93 second demo of what it is all about.

Nice find and thanks to the OP

Looks like it will be a great thing to keep a couple of kids occupied.

do you have a link?

Also, I thought Nintendo where taking action against ATARI as they have put "Licensed by Nintendo" on their products when Nintendo state they havn't.

Good idea! That looks good too ! :thumbsup:

I pre ordered this from play along with the wii jog, if they are not much good its not the end of the world. If my 8 year old sees that advert with them all jumping etc he will ask for it, and If santa couldn't get it, he would wonder what he did wrong!

I think this is going to be a really hot deal!!

Twister!

Just went for the atari mat thing. The samba video looks like you need two wiimotes per player

I believe you can play any combination of two devices, so wiimote and nunchuck is fine. :thumbsup:

As for this thing, I think you lot are crazy to order something before you know if its any good simply because you figure the kids will enjoy jumping about on the mat. :thinking:
