The Nintendo flag’s at half-mast. The black armbands have been snapped on. Wii Fit again placed tenth in the Japanese charts this week, down to 9,000 sales from 12,000 a week ago. Next week, it may well be gone.

One of this generation’s most significant hits has sold 3.35 million units in Japan, however, so things aren’t that bad. Right, Nintendo? Worldwide plastic fitness thing phenomenon: we salute you.
