Konami has posted a trailer for a new game called Walk It Out. From the looks of it you can use the remote and nunchuk, balance board, or a Dance Dance Revolution dance mat to simulate walking. That’s right! Walking.
In addition to walking, you may also see a rainbow, build a hotel, or whack a jelly martian with a giant meat tenderizer.
It looks while you’re walking, you’ll be able to build stuff in the world around you. It appears as though each thing you want to build has a cost, so you’ll need to earn points somehow. Probably in the minigames. I’m not sure how many different game concepts you can build around walking, but I’m hoping they go in some creative directions with it.
The trailer promises a hundred of your favorite songs. I’m pretty sure the game will not actually include a hundred of my favorite songs. But if it includes Bob Dylan’s rendition of Dixie or Meat Loaf’s Bat Out of Hell, you can color me pleasantly surprised.
Check out the trailer below. Try to get past Liz’s crazed exuberance. I think she and Dad may have some history together, so it’s all a bit awkward.
So there you have it. What do you think? Does this look like it could be fun? Are you frightened by Liz’s crazed enthusiasm? Are you looking forward to walking to 100 of your favorite songs? And if so, does this give you a reason to do it in your house instead of outside with an .mp3 player?
