Former Spice Girl Mel B is to star in her very own fitness game this autumn, thanks to Black Bean.

The singer will serve as a celebrity trainer for Get Fit, which with Mel B will be released for Wii, Xbox 360 and PS3 this Q4. It will be compatible with PlayStation Move and the newly-renamed Kinect.

The game follows on from the publisher's Fitness First titles and features six types of aerobic disciplines and more than 100 exercises.

I have always been passionate about videogames and then when I grew up my preferences moved towards fitness and wellbeing,” said Mel B. Today I can finally mix together my two big passions – it's been like a dream.

I believe that the upcoming new technologies will definitely deliver more to the people as it is a complete entertainment experience where television show features, videogame mechanics and fitness come into a unique and exciting formula. It is like a new media era, and I want to be a pioneer.”

Black Bean's strategic corporate co-ordinator Fabrizio Valiasindi added: We were looking to the future of interaction in Family & Lifestyle products, not just as a porting of a dated experience but as a fresh new vision.

Get Fit With Mel B is going into that direction, trying to redesign the feeling of interaction with a trendy approach to a user interface.”
