Hmmm...
To do:
There may be debug options at offset 43ABF0 of the executable (US, Rev 1)?

Wii Fit is an exercise game that uses the Wii Balance Board for a bunch of different minigames, as well as doing Yoga with a very creepy woman who somehow became a fighter in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. The game was a huge success, and even spawned a sequel.

Unused Graphics

Balance Test

Common\RPHealthBalance\common.carc has four brres files for some sort of test with a ball, goal, seesaw, and... stop!!

icon_test.brres

Common\RPHealthTraining\common.carc has a file called item_test.brres, which has instructions on meditative breathing.

Realistic Trainer

Hmmm...
To do:
Make GIFs of the animations.

Common\RPHealthMainScene\common.arc has a model of a more realistic female trainer with textureless, solid-color clothes.

Based on the structure of the model and the full version of her body texture, it is apparent that the model was originally nude and the developers simply retextured parts of her body to create her clothing. The color of her clothes roughly match that of the normal trainer in the original Wii Fit. (They appear white in the image due to a rendering error.) The clothing meshes have their UV data removed, making them unable to use the body texture.

The trainer has a few animations of some warm-up stretches and yoga poses, but her shoulders get distorted and inverted due to how they are rigged. Additionally, while the warm-up poses flow together, the yoga poses (different steps of the Tree pose) are almost completely still and have no transition between them.

timeStamp.txt has the build date of the game.

Camera Scripts

Hmmm...
To do:
Double check if this applies to other regions.

In the USA Rev 1 edition, two csv files are left behind in "Common/RPHealthMainScene/common.carc" in its "chart" folder. One named "radio_gym_00.csv" and the other "実験トレーニング_データフォーマット.csv" (roughly translating to ExperimentalTraining_DataFormat), they describe camera actions, timing, sound, animation and sequences.

Debugging Material

Build Display

Oddly not stubbed out in product builds of the game is a hidden display for the product build date. According to the developer documents in an internal developer wiki found in the 2020-09-09 Nintendo leaks, pressing a button combo going by "A, Up (D-Pad), 2, Down (D-Pad), B, 1, 1, B, Left (D-Pad), A and Right (D-Pad)" on a Wii Remote at the square (title screen) will show a display in the bottom right corner in black for the region and product build type (found in the executable) and also print out the data in timeStamp.txt until the scene is exited, there is no sound cue.
