Ubisoft has launched Your Shape: Fitness Evolved 2012 exclusively on Kinect, allowsing players to showcase their individuality through fitness routines ranging from dance and yoga to intense targeted workouts, cardio boxing and rigorous boot camps. All told, the fitness game includes more than 90 hours of exercise-minded gameplay.
Your Shape: Fitness Evolved 2012 now offers an extensive variety of diverse themed workouts inspired by an array of exotic cultures, including African, Bollywood, Latin and Hip Hop dance fitness classes, and Zen workout sessions. With detailed backdrops and stimulating music inspired by various cultures around the world, these unique options help transform routine workouts into exciting trips around the globe that will not only capture, but keep, players’ attention. The 2012 version also introduces a unique, new feature called Run the World, which will allows players to virtually run through the streets of some of the world’s most beautiful cities, including New York and London.
Ubisoft has also partnered with Humana, a large national health and supplemental benefits company, to create three Humana-sponsored workout programs within Your Shape: Fitness Evolved 2012. The three workout programs are Strengthen Your Heart, focused on high blood pressure; Active Kids, targeted at preventing childhood obesity; and Aging With Grace, designed to help elder mobility and agility.
Utilizing the controller-free Kinect sensor, Your Shape: Fitness Evolved 2012 features an improved movement tracking system throughout the entire game. Not only is it able to precisely point out which moves players are doing incorrectly, but now it also acts as your own personal trainer, offering users feedback on how to correctly execute their missed movements to achieve optimal workout results. Incorporating friends into your workouts is now easier than ever with an offline multiplayer mode. Mini-games feature turn-based offline gameplay that can track the scores of up to four players. At the Your Shape Center, players can view their progression and challenge friends or users across the globe, motivating them to push themselves to the max and earn bragging rights, all while burning calories. Mobile applications and Facebook integration allow users to share their progress with friends even when they’re away from their home.
Your Shape: Fitness Evolved 2012 will also offer new add-on content available on Xbox Live Marketplace for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft to stimulate and enhance players’ workout experiences. The first installment of add-on content for Your Shape: Fitness Evolved 2012 will become available this winter.
