Fitness Boxing 2 Announced For Switch
Listen to this article
There were some huge announcements during the recent Nintendo Direct Mini, including a new Monster Hunter game and a Switch release of Ori and the Will of the Wisps. One that might have flown under the radar was the announcement of Fitness Boxing 2: Rhythm and Exercise, a sequel to the system’s first dedicated fitness game.
Fitness Boxing 2 will yet again task you with performing boxing moves in time with music. The game will now let you turn off certain boxing moves that you don’t want to perform, and features new tracks and instructors. There are 66 courses and 23 songs to choose from.
Otherwise, it looks very similar to the first game, but hopefully there will be improvements to motion tracking. Save data carries over, so if Fitness Boxing is part of your fitness routine, you can continue tracking your progress.
The game also touts a two-player mode and an alarm function. You can watch the trailer below.
It’ll be interesting to see if Fitness Boxing 2 can hold up against the fitness juggernaut that is Ring Fit Adventure when it releases on December 4, exclusively on Switch. Since the game requires the use of Joy Cons, it’ll be a bit harder to play on a Switch Lite.
Another fitness game, Jump Rope Challenge, is currently available on Switch for free. Hurry, though–it’s only available until September 30.
