We’ve been keeping a steady eye on Nintendo’s latest efforts to keep us cooped up in our homes with nary a reason to see the daylight ever again! Exaggeration? Have you seen the new Wii Yoga they’ve got primed for launch in October? Last month we reported on the fair maiden who will guide us all to zen through the magic of video games, Ms. international supermodel Anja Rubik. Now there’s a freshly minted website covering the basics of the new “game” and a display of Ms. Rubik post-transformation from haute couture to yoga demure (photo dramatization courtesy of YD). There’s really not much new information on the site besides charming Anja pics and screenshots from the setting of “authentic far-eastern locations and buildings”. Yep, they went all out with this one.
Gotta tell ya, we’re kinda relieved they didn’t have Anja dolled up in hanky panky spandex and tata-tamers. Still we’re not sure why they needed Twiggy to portray the “motivator” and personal trainer. But so it goes!
