GameMill Entertainment has announced a partnership with NBC and Universal's Games team to bring American Ninja Warrior Challenge to Nintendo Switch - a game based on NBC's hit television show.

As our North American friends will no doubt already be aware, the show has contestants competing on various obstacle courses, aiming to make it all the way to the end and enthusiastically throw themselves on to a giant button. As you do. This game is said to feature fan-favourite obstacle courses from the show, while hosts Matt Iseman and Akbar Gbajabiamila provide commentary.

Players can test their skills with friends and family in the game's couch multi-player mode, or you can choose to take on a challenging career mode to train and compete all the way to Mt. Midoriyama. Tim Flaherty, Partner at GameMill Entertainment, has said the following in a press release:

"American Ninja Warrior has continuously grown in popularity over the past 10 seasons and we are thrilled to partner with NBCUniversal to bring fans an authentic and action-packed American Ninja Warrior experience on gaming consoles for the first time. We are excited to unveil the many challenging and fun features in the coming months, which are designed to allow players to step into the shoes of their very own American Ninja Warrior competitor."

American Ninja Warrior Challenge launches on 19th March on Switch and other leading platforms; pricing has still yet to be revealed.
