Nintendo announced today that this December, Australia will be getting a special Wii bundle which includes the newly remodeled (and de-GameCube’d) black Wii, Wii Fit Plus, and for the first time ever, a black Balance Board. I’d personally recommend Wii Fit to just about anyone, as it does provide a good introduction to exercise…not to mention one incredibly accurate scale. No word on whether or not this limited package will come to the states, but I wouldn’t count on it since US has a few different Wii bundles currently in circulation.

Press release:
Available for a limited time only, Nintendo announces a Wii Fit Plus Pack, available from 1 December 2011.

The Wii Fit Plus Pack includes: the new configuration Wii, Wii Fit Plus, Wii Remote Plus, a Nunchuk and the Wii Balance Board which is available in black for the first time.

More than 1.3 million* Australians are enjoying the workouts that Wii Fit and Wii Fit Plus offer. Wii Fit Plus offers everything that Wii Fit did, plus more – the option to customise and design your own work outs, additional exercises, estimates of calories burned, 15 additional balance games, and an option to weigh your baby and even your cat and dog!

The streamlined new configuration Wii console has been designed to sit horizontally on a flat surface, rather than vertically as did the original Wii.**

The Wii Fit Plus Pack will be available in black only, for SRP AU $249.95***
