'Your Shape' (Wii) Featuring Jenny McCarthy as Your Coach

Your Shape is a new fitness title that leverages the technological advances of an entirely new camera for the Wii that will scan your body using Ubisoft's proprietary Body Tracking technology and then project the image onto the TV, creating a personalized and interactive workout.

Your Shape is the first fitness game that comes with a camera peripheral included inside the box. Featuring Ubisoft's proprietary Body Tracking technology, the game will scan your body and then project the image onto the TV, creating a personalized and interactive workout.

Based on your specific body shape analysis, fitness level and personal goals, Your Shape is able to recommend the workout program that is best suited for you.

The game also features a virtual coach that provides verbal and visual feedback on all of your movements, ensuring that each minute invested achieves maximum results. Always by your side, the coach motivates you to reach your goals. Because Your Shape has more exercises than any other fitness game, the workout routine is always fresh and exciting. Best of all, Your Shape allows you to get these benefits without holding a controller, leaving your hands free to incorporate any equipment that you may already own, without any excess bands or straps. The camera and Body Tracking technology follow your progress, showing you the tangible results of your hard work.

In addition to being the face of Your Shape featuring Jenny McCarthy in North America, Jenny will also be your in-game work-out buddy, providing a fun and motivating exercise experience, while also ensuring that players get the most efficient, and effective, work-out possible. Once the player completes an initial fitness test, McCarthy's in-game avatar will be able to completely personalize their workout routine to both their fitness level as well as their personal fitness goals. And, with the innovative new motion tracking technology, the game is able to follow a player's movements as they work-out, and guides them so that they know whether or not they're doing the exercises correctly.

"Partnering with Jenny McCarthy was a no-brainer for us,” said Tony Key, vice president of sales and marketing, North America. "Her commitment to fitness, and exceptionally wide fan-base, make her an ideal fit for the Your Shape brand. Best of all, she will make the workout fun for players, which is an element that has been missing in the fitness game market.”

"I am thrilled to be working with Ubisoft on Your Shape,” said Jenny McCarthy. "The features in the game are incredible, and you have to see the technology to believe it. I was blown away. I truly believe in the importance of fitness, and Your Shape featuring Jenny McCarthy is the perfect way to get a truly interactive, personalized workout on Wii. Given how busy we all are these days, especially once you have kids, it is important to find the most effective way to keep fit from the comfort of home.”

Ubisoft's Your Shape is currently scheduled for release this Holiday 2009.
