The 2012 version also introduces a unique, new feature called Run the World, which will allows players to virtually run through the streets of some of the world’s most beautiful cities, including New York and London.

Not only is it able to precisely point out which moves players are doing incorrectly, but now it also acts as your own personal trainer, offering users feedback on how to correctly execute their missed movements to achieve optimal workout results. Incorporating friends into your workouts is now easier than ever with an offline multiplayer mode. Mini-games feature turn-based offline game-play that can track the scores of up to four players. At the Your Shape Centre, players can view their progression and challenge friends or users across the globe, motivating them to push themselves to the max and earn bragging rights, all while burning calories.
