With news that more than 19.67 million Nintendo Switch consoles have been sold worldwide and the million-sellers list continues to grow, but, snuck in the upcoming release schedule, Nintendo has announced that Fitness Boxing will release on the portable home console.

The exercise game, which comes from Imagineer, will build on the success that the Japanese developer’s Shape Boxing series saw on Wii, which went on to sell more than 800,000 copies worldwide.

Holding a Joy-Con in each hand, an in-game instructor will guide you through a full-scale boxing program – letting you train safely and effectively at home while burning calories at the same time.

As Wii Fit had once achieved, and as the interactive build-and-play Nintendo Labo kits are now doing, Fitness Boxing continues Nintendo’s efforts to broaden the appeal around the console.

The company is looking to further accelerate the great momentum behind the console with Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 03: Vehicle Kit and Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna – The Golden Country releasing in September, Super Mario Party in October, Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee! in November and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate in December.

Fitness Boxing will release exclusively for Nintendo Switch in Europe and North America in Winter.

  1. For clarity, Fitness Boxing is being licensed to Nintendo for sale in North America and Europe, similar to Octopath Traveler. it does not mean it isn’t coming to Japan from a different distributor.
