It seems that Nintendo is single-handedly trying to keep people active while they are all shut in at home. Following the hugely popular and in-demand ‘Ring Fit Adventure,’ Nintendo is introducing ‘Jump Rope Challenge,’ and it’s completely free to play.
Keeping Things Simple
Thanks to the Nintendo Switch games console, people can now get a free workout in their homes. ‘Ring Fit Adventure’ has become hugely popular during the lockdown, and in many cases, the game is sold out. So if you haven’t been able to get your hands on the adventure, ‘Jump Rope Challenge’ could be the free alternative for you. Players use the Joy-Con controllers as jump rope handles as they swing them around as they jump.
‘Jump Rope Challenge’ gives gamers the initial challenge of 100 jumps in a day, but you can adjust the challenge depending on your fitness and skill level. The game uses jumping bunny rabbits to show your progress, meaning there is a certain fun element to distract you from simply jumping rope. One advantage of this game is the fact it doesn’t require any additional accessories, unlike ‘Ring Fit Adventure,’ which has its own equipment. The game is a simple one, but you can challenge a friend as there is a two-player mode.
Success of Ring Fit Adventure
Nintendo’s ‘Ring Fit Adventure’ was so successful that it saw shortages in supply worldwide. ‘Jump Rope Challenge’ is another game from Nintendo that gets its customers moving with a focus on health and wellbeing. Nintendo says, “It’s all the fun of jumping, but there’s not a rope in sight.”
Thanks to Nintendo, you can now get a good jump rope workout without having to learn how to actually jump over a rope. The free game is available to download from the Nintendo eStore right now until the end of September.
