Pack shots of the upcoming mixed martial arts-based fitness trainer have confirmed Wii peripheral support.

Wii’s first UFC title is a fitness-based experience from THQ, designed with help from leading MMA training experts and certified by UFC and the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM).

The Wii Balance Board will be supported but not required for play, much like in EA Sports Active 2. A leg strap, that will likely hold the Nunchuck controller, will also be included.

“UFC Personal Trainer delivers an authentic UFC fitness experience that is both fun and challenging while providing an intense workout,” said THQ studio boss, Danny Bilson.

“With the help of NASM and its Optimum Performance Training model, as well as the expertise of renowned MMA trainers Mark DellaGrotte, Greg Jackson and Javier Mendez, we are developing an original, high impact product that will help people around the world set and achieve their personal fitness goals.”

The Official Nintendo Magazine site has a number of screens, if you want to see what you might be letting yourself in for.

UFC Personal Trainer is due for release in June on Wii, PS3 and Kinect.
