Since the creation of the Nintendo Wii, many sport related games that call on your actual body putting in effort have flooded the market. Adidas and 505 Games have joined forces to add another to the list, bringing the Adidas miCoach video game to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles. The game will have a more technical training approach and will require the use of motion control peripherals to work.
So what can you expect from Adidas miCoach? Gamers will have unparalleled connectivity, allowing interaction with the miCoach system through mobile apps and miCoach.com, making that training routine easier to plan. You will also be able to track your workout progress, with positive or negative feedback helping you improve your game. 400 exercises dedicated to optimizing fitness levels will also be included, with many for particular sporting activities, so you have plenty to choose from.
With Adidas in the title, it isn’t a surprise some stars from the sporting world will train alongside you in-game. A roster of athletes including Kaka, Dwight Howard, Manuel Neuer, Jessica Ennis, Jose Mourinho, Ana Ivanovic, Will Genia and Eric Berry will give you those all important tips in their selected sport. Tim Woodley, head of Global Brand at 505 Games had this to say about teaming up with Adidas for the game:
It’s been fantastic to partner with such a globally recognizable brand as Adidas and on as ground breaking a product as Adidas miCoach. We’ve seen athletes of all levels respond to how complete and, literally, exhaustive, the training offered by the miCoach game is and can’t wait to hear how consumers benefit from adding the game to their existing training schedule. Bringing something truly new to the sports training and fitness segment on consoles, integrating it into the wider miCoach pantheon and capitalizing on a packed summer of sport in 2012 is just the start of a great relationship.
Not a bad addition for those looking to stay in shape, with the Adidas brand name backing it up, no doubt it will be well looked after on the technical side as much as the fitness side. Adidas miCoach is available now for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Let us know in the awesome comment section below your thoughts and if you will be picking up this title.
