Nintendo pedometer add-on for use with DS game

Nintendo pedometer confirm

Some questions regarding the leaked pedometer from Nintendo have been answered on Friday, as multiple reports reveal the device will ship with the game entitled Your Life Rhythm for the existing Nintendo DS and upcoming DSi portable gaming console. Judging from the game's screen captures, the game will keep track of not only how many steps users have taken and when or how often, but also how much energy they have used and therefore calories burned.

Users would likely create a virtual character based on themselves, including height and weight, like in the Wii Fit game for the Nintendo Wii, which would then allow the game's software to make guesses about a user's progress and approximate how much energy they are using.

No official release dates or pricing is known for the Your Life Rhythm game. [via Kotaku]
