Jump Rope Challenge

One release that popped up out of nowhere last month was Jump Rope Challenge. It's a free Switch eShop download that's available until this September. The aim of it - as you probably already know - is to jump at least 100 times per day.

As basic as it is, it seems Switch players around the world are sticking with this new exercise routine. Following on from the last update on 19th June (which recorded 200 million jumps), players have now jumped over 590,000,000 times in the game. This latest update was shared during Nintendo's 80th General Shareholders Meeting Q&A.

Here's exactly what was said, according to translator and Nintendo Life contributor, Robert Sephazon:

Director Takahashi goes onto say that Jump Rope Challenge was created by Nintendo developers during remote work. Over 590,000,000 jumps have been recorded by the time of the Q&A.

As limited as this game is, we actually gave this game eight out of ten stars in our recent mini-review and said it was a noble attempt to get Switch owners active during these difficult times - and would perhaps even put a smile on your face, too.
