Nintendo has released Jump Rope Challenge for free.
Nintendo has revealed a brand-new, simple game created by a small team of Nintendo developers as a little side-project during the quarantine. Jump Rope Challenge is nothing special, it’s simply a regular game made to implement “quick and fun physical movement” into their daily lives.

The game allows up to two players using the Joy-Con controller. The game is a standard fitness title; hold onto the controllers and simulate using a jump rope. You can set your own goal and it’s a simple way to work out without having to stress too much.
As established, the title was a group effort consisting of Nintendo developers while working from home in Japan and likely felt the need to keep some activity going. Some of Nintendo’s fitness games have certainly hit the mark. During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Ring Fit Adventure was in surprisingly high demand thanks to social distancing and steering clear of public places, such as gyms. But, with its high demand, it’s hard to get a copy.
Jump Rope Challenge is available for free until the end of September.
What do you think? Are you getting this small game for the heck of it? What do you think if you’ve tried it out?
