Nintendo Released Jump Rope Challenge for Free

With no weights available for purchase and gyms not yet open, it’s up to us to keep active at home. Some people have access to Ring Fit Adventure, Nintendo’s excellent exercise game that helps keep you in shape, while others prefer taking walks and using bodyweight as exercise.

If you don’t have access to any of these things though, this new and free game from Nintendo might be of interest. It was developed by a team of developers working at home in Japan and it uses the JoyCons as handles to your virtual skipping rope. All you do is skip and watch the counter go up, and if you have an additional set of controllers, a second person can join in!

You can pick up Jump Rope Challenge right now until the end of September. It’s a limited release but I’m not sure why Nintendo is setting a time limit on this game.
