Shawn Johnson Gymnastics is compatible with the Wii Balance Board, the game will offer a truly realistic experience in the following gymnastics events: floor exercise, vault, balance beam and uneven parallel bars.

Featuring the guidance and voice of Olympic gold medalist, all-round champion and “Dancing with the Stars” winner, Shawn Johnson, the game invites up to eight players to train and compete in the exciting world of professional gymnastics.

In Shawn Johnson Gymnastics, aspiring gymnasts can work their way from amateur to champion as they master gymnastics maneuvers on four apparatuses, including uneven bars, balance beam, floor, and vault. Featuring exclusive bonus content of Shawn Johnson that players can unlock by perfecting routines, the game allows players to experience the thrill of this inspirational sport right in their own living room and includes a choreograph editor for creating and planning out routines.


Shawn Johnson Gymnastics for the Wii, lets players utilize the Wii Remote and Nunchuk to compete and execute routines, while the pressure sensitivity feature of the Balance Board challenges their coordination and captures their lower-body movements. In the Nintendo DS version, players leverage the stylus to draw and create patterns on the device’s touch sensitive screen in order to get the in-game character to perform different moves and motions.

Shawn has worked closely with Zoo Games to provide incredibly realistic game play. By incorporating her gymnastics skills, consumers will be able to create an authentic gymnastics experience right from their very own living room.

Medaling in both gold and silver in Beijing at the 2008 Olympics, as well as receiving an ESPY and the prestigious James E.
