This updated model, called the World Magnetic Model, was supposed to be published Jan. 15, but it's now been delayed to Jan. 30, on account of the government shutdown.

    Fitness Boxing Rated T for Teen for Accurately Depicting the Female Form

    For a game about encouraging people to move, the ESRB seems pretty hell-bent on making sure children don't play Fitness Boxing. As the spiritual successor to Wii Fit, Fitness Boxing has–naturally–flown under the radar. Its release seems to have been aimed at cashing in on those of us who are looking to start off 2019 with a workout routine or, at least, some way to justify our “new year, new me” attitude.
