Nintendo Switch owners looking to break a sweat at home currently have several fitness games at their disposal, including Fitness Boxing and the critically acclaimed Ring Fit Adventure. To add another to the list is a game just recently released by the company called Jump Rope Challenge, which is available entirely for free.
According to Nintendo, the game was created by a small group of company developers while working from home in Japan during self-quarantine. Jump Rope Challenge is a simple and straightforward game which utilises two Joy-Con controllers emulating jump rope handles. From there, we’re pretty sure you’d know how this game works.

This would also mean that Nintendo Switch Lite users may not be able to play the game, seeing that it requires Joy-Cons. That is, unless they own a pair for whatever reason.
Jump Rope Challenge will keep track of the number of skips you’ll do during a session, with the main goal of 100 jumps. That said, you can still continue to go above the benchmark if you wish, and the game will continue to keep track of your progress. You can also opt to save your records daily to see how much you’ve achieved per session in a week.
And that’s pretty much it. Well, it’s a free game after all and those interested can download the game now directly from the Nintendo eShop.
