Nintendo Wii and The American Heart Association

As leaders in their respective fields, the American Heart Association and Nintendo are joining forces to promote physically active play as part of a healthy lifestyle. It’s a first-of-its-kind strategic relationship between a video game company and the American Heart Association. The relationship focuses on Nintendo’s active-play video game products, including Wii Fit Plus, Wii Sports Resort and the Wii console itself. The boxes for each of these products will carry the American Heart Association brand to get people thinking about physically active play. The brand serves as a chance to remind people about the benefits of a healthy approach to living and how active-play video games can be an integral part of a healthy lifestyle.
