Your Shape getting 12 different DLC packs, first due in 'early December'

Next month, Ubisoft begins a full-on Your Shape: Fitness Evolved DLC strategy by offering its first of 12 planned fitness program packs throughout the first half of 2011. This first content pack, which will be available in "early December," includes the "Body Toning Program" and "Cardio Boxing Platinum," a new fitness regimen and advanced exercise class, respectively.

The second bunch of DLC, available "shortly after" the first set, will include "New Year New You," a program designed to get players back into shape after the holiday festivities, and "Dance Workout Bollywood," a high impact dance workout using popular Bollywood dance moves." It all sounds well and good, but if we can't summon demon hipster chicks afterward, we're gonna feel cheated.

No price has been set for any of the DLC, though Ubisoft did say it'll offer each pack individually or in bundles. We just have one question: With all of that DLC to create, how will you find time to get your online portal fully functional, Ubisoft?

"Each trainer insisted on the fact that in order to keep people motivated, it would be important to consistently bring new varieties of exercise to the game.
