It’s not nearly as full-featured or extensive as Ring Fit Adventure, but it does encourage activity using the accessories you already have. It simply emulates the jump rope experience using Joy-Cons while counting your jumps on the screen. If you have friends or family, the game even supports up to two players.
For those who can’t perform vigorous activities, the game is still accessible, allowing players to play simply by bending their knees or even just moving their arms. The best part of it all is that Jump Rope Challenge is free, although Nintendo clarifies that the free copy will only be claimable for a limited time until the end of September 2020.
