But much like Wii Fit, I cannot guarantee that it will maintain your interest for long or present enough new features over time. While Ring Fit focuses on working out my muscles, Fitness Boxing does a much better job at getting my heart rate up while consistently burning calories. You follow one of nine trainers as they take you through various workouts consisting of a variety of punches. You’ll get a ‘Perfect’ if you time it perfectly, an ‘OK’ if your timing is a little off, or a ‘Miss’ if you… well, miss. As mentioned previously, the game also has an achievement system, which is a very nice way to add a bit of incentive for players to keep coming back.

The game comes with a large selection of new tracks ranging from “YMCA” from the Village People to “Hot N Cold” by Katy Perry. At the very least, you won’t have to stow away a balance board in a closet somewhere after punching out. They’ve all got customisable hair, skin, and eye colour – plus a wardrobe of sharp outfits that are unlocked as you progress. In the first game, instructor outfits were unlocked when you hit certain milestones, but some of these were frankly ridiculous: throwing a total of 198,000 punches to unlock a new top felt ever so slightly disproportionate. Well, it does have 23 songs compared to the 20 of the first Fitness Boxing, but 3 are original compositions as opposed to lyric-less versions of random pop songs and all are largely forgettable.I was excited, then, to see that Fitness Boxing 2 was in development, and I was lucky enough to have Nintendo send me a code for review. To make matters easier every single song and workout is set to the same tempo, so there is never a situation where you’ll need to speed up or slow down your movements. After your workout is complete, you’re then scored on how accurate your punches were – and that’s more or less it, really.

If, when throwing punches, the game thinks you aren’t quite hitting the mark, it may be worth checking out Fitness Boxing’s timing settings to solve any delays that your TV and speakers could be causing. But it wasn’t until Wii Fit came out back in 2007 that fitness games would become a whole lot more than just a simple gimmick.

Whatever difficulty you play on, you can revisit specific exercises for practice or watch detailed examples to observe perfect form.

While the idea of Fitness Boxing 2 is pretty simple, I was surprised with just how effective it was at getting my heart rate up and making me feel legitimately tired after a longer session. It does add in things like a proper score function, which lets you build up a larger and larger score before entering a special mode where the levels go all chaotic and colourful, and the new areas are also quite nice, with each one being nice and vibrant, but it’s all just window dressing. When you do the Daily Workout, your instructor chooses a series of routines and songs based on your chosen fitness goals and how long you’d like to exercise.I also felt a different kind of burn when I missed a weekend, breaking my streak that the instructors were so keen to congratulate me on. After your payment has been processed, the content will be downloaded to the applicable system linked to your Nintendo Account, or your Nintendo Network ID in the case of Wii U or Nintendo 3DS family systems. For example, having to move back and forth like you are a boxer on your feet is something that is encouraged, but is impossible for the game to check.

To describe it simply, it’s an exercise game that uses music to get you to move in rhythm to the beat. Jabs and straights are fine for the most part, but when you start introducing hooks and uppercuts to the mix, that’s when things can start to get a little messy – until you reverse-engineer the Joy-Con in your head and figure out exactly what gesture the Switch is looking for. The game is broken down into drills of 8-11 minutes in length you string together to form the free workout.It didn’t really hit the mainstream, however, until Nintendo released Wii Fit alongside the Wii Fit Balance board in 2007. There’s a variety of modes and punches you can throw to work up a sweat and actually get a pretty effective workout in. Though their personalities may be different, most of what they say during workouts is essentially the same (or use words to that effect), so you won’t be missing out if you stick to only one; you’ll be forever mine Evan! My routine has involved playing Fitness Boxing 2 for 20 minutes as a warm-up, and then closing out my day with about 45 minutes of Ring Fit Adventure.
