SAN FRANCISCO – November 9, 2009 – Ubisoft announced today that its upcoming fitness game, Your Shape(TM) Featuring Jenny McCarthy, a ground-breaking new title that leverages the technological advances of an entirely new, revolutionary camera peripheral, will now be released for Windows-based PC in North America only, as well as the previously announced Wii(TM) system from Nintendo. Your Shape Featuring Jenny McCarthy is scheduled to be released worldwide this Holiday 2009.

"We remain extremely excited about the potential of the new camera for Wii, as well as the innovation that Ubisoft is bringing to the ever-growing fitness market,” stated Tony Key, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Ubisoft. "We are now enabling an entirely new subset of fitness gaming fan to experience the benefits of Your Shape, anywhere there is a PC.”

Your Shape featuring Jenny McCarthy is the first fitness game that comes with a camera peripheral included inside the box. Featuring Ubisoft's proprietary motion tracking technology, the game will scan your body and then project the image onto the TV, creating a personalized and interactive workout. Based on your specific body shape analysis, fitness level and personal goals, Your Shape is able to recommend the workout program that is best suited for you.

The game also features a virtual coach, Jenny McCarthy, who provides verbal and visual feedback on all of your movements, ensuring that each minute invested achieves maximum results. And, because Your Shape Featuring Jenny McCarthy has more exercises than any other fitness game, the workout routine is always fresh and exciting. Best of all, Your Shape Featuring Jenny McCarthy allows you to get these benefits without holding a controller, leaving your hands free to incorporate any equipment that you may already own. The camera and motion tracking technology follow your progress, showing you the tangible results of your hard work. Additionally, the camera that comes bundled with the Windows PC version of the game is a fully functioning webcam.
