Imagineer, the developer of the Nintendo Switch title Fitness Boxing, has announced a major milestone for the game. Fitness Boxing has now exceeded worldwide shipments of over 700,000. This includes physical and digital downloads of the game.

Fitness Boxing is an exercise game where players use the Joy-Cons to perform various on-screen moves. The game initially launched in 2018 and has been popular with all age groups. Fitness Boxing encourages sedentary gamers to get off the couch and get moving. The game has boxing-based rhythmic exercises set to the instrumental versions of pop songs.

Players can further customize gameplay by selecting different fitness goals. Gameplay can be done either alone or with a friend from home or from anywhere in the world, as long as the player has their Nintendo Switch device.

The last milestone the game reached was in December 2019, where the game reached over 500,000 worldwide shipments. As of April 2020, the game has reached over 700,000.

It’s no surprise that the demand for games, especially fitness games, has been on the rise. Gyms have closed across the nation, which means gamers are looking for new ways to stay fit, especially when gym equipment is so expensive.

Players can set daily training routines from 10-40 minutes. Through staying on-task, players can unlock new songs and more challenging training modes.

Imagineer recently released several training videos featuring Japanese voice actors on its official YouTube channel for a limited time. Players interested in the title can get a preview, but the only song in all of the videos is for “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen.

Ring Fit Adventure, another exercise title that requires players to purchase a thigh strap and ring grip accessory, has also been in demand. Unfortunately, the game has been in high-demand, causing inflated pricing and out-of-stock products online. The Nintendo Switch is region free, so players from all over the world were purchasing it after the COVID-19 pandemic caused governments to declare Stay at Home regulations.

Since Fitness Boxing doesn’t require any additional equipment, players can easily download the title from the Switch eShop as a 1008 MB download. A free demo is also available. The North American release of the game supports English, French, and Spanish languages.

Fitness Boxing is available now on the Nintendo Switch eShop.
