Nintendo Launches Free Jump Rope Challenge Game For The Nintendo Switch

The lockdown has caused not only financial strain on the world, but also on the mental and physical well-being of people who might otherwise be going out socializing, exercising, and so on. If you’re going a little stir crazy at home right now, the good news is that if you own the Nintendo Switch, Nintendo has recently released a free game for you all.

The company has announced a free title called the Jump Rope Challenge. This is pretty much as its name suggests, where players will be able to jump rope using their Joy-Cons to emulate the experience of jumping rope. According to Nintendo, this game was developed by developers who were working from home in Japan to help incorporate some physical movement in their life while making it a fun and social game.

'Star Wars Episode I: Racer' coming to PS4 and Switch in May

'burnout Paradise Remastered' Launches On Nintendo Switch This Year

'Burnout Paradise Remastered' launches on Nintendo Switch this year

One of the best racing games of the previous generation of game consoles (PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC), "Burnout Paradise" got a visual remaster and re-release a couple of years ago for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. This year, it gets added to one more system, the Nintendo Switch, so you can enjoy the fast paced vehicular destruction anywhere.

Besides offering high-speed fun on the go, "Burnout Paradise Remastered" coming to the Switch is significant because this is the first time it will have been available for a Nintendo console. With the original release, Nintendo's only home console, the Wii, didn't have the digital horsepower to handle the high-definition graphics of the then-new Burnout game. So publisher EA and developer Criterion Games didn't create a version for the system. The remaster skipped the Nintendo Wii U, too, which considering the system's sales, wasn't a terrible idea. So this marks the first time for Nintendo loyalists to play the game.

Nope, No New Nintendo Switch Models Are Being Planned For 2020

As it turns out, those rumors are wrong yet again. This is according to Nintendo’s CEO and President Shuntaro Furukawa who said that the company has no plans to launch a new Switch model in 2020. While Furukawa acknowledges that the Switch is in the halfway through its hardware lifecycle, he believes that they can still get more out of the current model instead of releasing a new one.

According to Furukawa, “According to the conventional wisdom for dedicated video game platforms, Nintendo Switch should be entering the midway phase of the hardware lifecycle. But we believe we have built a foundation on which we can pursue further growth opportunities for Nintendo Switch.”

BioShock Collection Could Be Headed For The Nintendo Switch

While we’re not sure when we might see another BioShock game released in the near future, the good news is that if you’re looking to replay the original BioShock trilogy, you could be in luck especially if you’re a Nintendo Switch owner. This is because according to a leak, it seems that the BioShock Collection could be headed to the console.

According to a post on the Taiwan rating board’s website, it has revealed the potential existence of the collection for the Switch. It should be noted that the remastered collection was previously released for the PS4 and Xbox One a few years ago, so for it to make its way onto the Switch doesn’t come as a surprise, especially given how popular the console is.

Nintendo Russia Surprises Frozen 2 Audiences With Free Switch Bundles

When you go to a movie, chances are you aren’t really expecting much. You expect to be able to enjoy your movie, maybe some snacks, and then go home. However, it seems that over in Russia, Nintendo Russia surprised Frozen 2 audiences when they made an appearance in the cinema and started giving away free Nintendo Switch bundles.

We’re not sure what Nintendo and Disney might be working on or how the Switch bundles tie-in with the movie, but hey, free is free, right? We’re not sure how this particular group of audiences were selected, but it’s still great PR for the company. Nintendo Russia made headlines earlier this year when its CEO seemingly lost his temper during an official livestream, so it could be that the company might be trying to get back in the good graces of its customers.

Spotify Squashes Any Hope Of It Launching On The Nintendo Switch

However, on the Switch front, it seems to be a bit slow. In fact, if you were hoping to get some music streaming apps on the Switch, you could be out of luck as Spotify seems to have essentially squashed our hopes of seeing it launch on the console. This is according to a suggestion posted onto Spotify’s community page back in 2017, but in a recent update by the company, they state that they have nothing to announce at this point in time.

The message reads, “Hey folks, Spotify staff here. We’re always working on improving the Spotify experience across platforms, but we don’t have any further information to share at the moment. It should also be noted that we typically don’t announce integrations with third parties in advance. Thanks for continuing to share your ideas.”
