Have you been keeping up with all the E3 announcements? Don’t worry, us neither. There sure are a lot of games to spend all our hard-earned eShop Gold on, though, and one of those games is actually good for you.
Yes, if you’ve been neglecting your Ring Fit Adventure controller like we have, then maybe you can get back into the swing of things with Knockout Home Fitness, from Marvelous and XSEED (the makers of Story of Seasons and Rune Factory). It’s a fitness game with “high-intensity workouts” inspired by martial arts, from karate to kung-fu. By holding the Joy-Cons in your hands, you’ll be able to punch and chop your way to BUFFNESS.
If the reason you’ve been putting off using the Ring Fit is that you can’t find time in the day to beat up Dragaux, then perhaps you’ll enjoy Knockout’s “3-Minute Fitness Mode”, which is a high-intensity workout that takes less time than it does to make a cup of tea. If you’ve got slightly longer, there are daily workouts that take 15 minutes, and a Personal Training Mode that will automatically vary the exercises for you.
With a “My Report” mode that lets you track your progress, you’ll be able to see if you’re actually burning calories, and making progress. There are also over 25 music tracks and four different trainers, ranging from friendly to strict, depending on how you like to train.
Knockout Home Fitness is coming to the Nintendo Switch in Autumn 2021, so you can spend the entirety of Winter getting super hot, and really good at karate.
