Nintendo releases free Jump Rope Challenge game for Switch

By Jack Taylor – 16 June 2020

Nintendo has released a free Switch game called Jump Rope Challenge, created by some of its developers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Possibly one of the cutest things ever, Jump Rope Challenge is an incredibly simple game which lets plays use two Joy-Cons as the handles of a virtual skipping rope. Two players can even play at once, with each holding one Joy-Con, or one 'end' of the skipping rope.

The game was created by a small group of Nintendo developers while working from home in Japan. Many workers in Japan have been working from home in recent months due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which saw the country announce a state of emergency as part of a plan to combat the virus.

Jump Rope Challenge will be available to download until the end of September.
