Let’s face it, we know that exercise is good for us but yet many of us find it a struggle to get ourselves out there to the gym, to the pool, to the park, and so on. What if exercise could be gamified, would that be something you might be interested in? The good news for Nintendo Switch owners is that a new fitness game will be headed to the console.

Announced by Nintendo, a new fitness game called “Fitness Boxing” will be launched on the Switch. Developed by Imagineer, this can be thought of as the spiritual successor to the Shape Boxing series that was launched on the Wii and managed to sell 800,000 copies worldwide. As expected the game will take advantage of the motion controllers in the Joy-Con controllers.

In a way it is similar to ARMS where players hold one Joy-Con in each hand while an on-screen instructor will guide players through a full-scale boxing program. This will allow players to exercise in the comfort and safety (from judgemental eyes) of their home. We’re not sure how effective this game will be at helping players lose weight, but hey, if you like boxing and wouldn’t mind taking it for a spin, Fitness Boxing will be launched on the Switch this coming Winter.
