Jump Rope Challenge was created back in the summer to help people exercise at home. It was developed by a small team inside Nintendo and has seen various updates since. Now, a couple of new features have been added to the game before its fate becomes unclear at the end of this month.
One of the main additions is a results screen, which allows you to look back at your progress in Jump Rope Challenge after you’ve completed 100 days in total. The second feature ties into the first, allowing players to reset their progress after 100 days and begin a second cycle. Typical stability improvements and bug fixes have also been implemented in version 1.2.0.
Back in July, Nintendo added a bunch of themed costumes from other Nintendo franchises to Jump Rope Challenge. It added some more personality to the game, featuring familiar faces from Mario, Splatoon, Metroid, and more.
The future of Jump Rope Challenge is a bit of a mystery though. Since the beginning, Nintendo has stated that this game will be available free until the end of September. Whether the game becomes a paid download from October remains to be seen, or it could potentially disappear from the eShop entirely come October, as will be the eventual fate of Super Mario 3D All-Stars at the end of March 2021.
Update 1.2.0 is out now for Jump Rope Challenge.
