Let’s see those fingers. Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has put a rough date on Wii’s Vitality Sensor for the first time, saying the peripheral will launch in 2010.

“We would like to deliver the actual product not too late in the year next year,” said the exec, speaking in an investor Q&A Nintendo posted in English yesterday.

Iwata then said that a “video game with a theme of relaxation” based on use of the peripheral is in the works at the company.

“We are conducting some tests internally at Nintendo, and found some patterns among our employees, like improving automatic nerve condition as the weekend nears or vice versa,” he said.

“Seeing what their condition is actually like, they can ‘visualize’ how they are looking forward to weekend. And see completely different patterns on each individual person.”
