DS health and exercise game sold in Japanese drugstores

On November 15th, not only will Japanese electronics stores begin carrying Kenkou Kentei (Health Certification) but drugstores will as well. Produced under the supervision of the Chief of Research Planning and Evaluation for Japan's National Health and Nutrition Institute, the program is designed to help people manage their health through diet, exercise planning, and information on avoiding illnesses.

We don't know if the drugstore thing is just a marketing gimmick or a clue that this is genuinely helpful software. Probably some of both. We remember seeing some budget PS2 games in a CVS Pharmacy one time, but we don't really think that Corvette would teach us anything about balanced meals.
