E3 2014: Shape Up Announced for Kinect for Xbox One

New fitness from Ubisoft
Ubisoft has announced a new fitness title designed for Kinect for Xbox One, entitled Shape Up.
Unlike other fitness titles, the product takes fitness and applies it to game situations. In the first demo shown, the demonstrator competed against his own likeness from an earlier attempt, in what looked to be a modified version of Dance Dance Revolution to a remix of Survivor's classic "Eye Of The Tiger."
In a second demo, two competititors went head to head in a push-up contest. The idea is that fitness is more likely to be effective if it's fun. Given how sharp the product looked, we can't say that we can argue - it genuinely looks like a solid product.
Shape Up is due later in 2014.
