After being clued in about the existence of Fitness Boxing, for most of this year, today Nintendo have taken the time to announce a western release and saw fit to provide a ton of details.
No prices have been given, but for those of you in North America, you can expect to pick it up on January 4, 2011. For those of you in Europe though, let’s just say Boxing Day is coming sooner, as it will be out on December 21, 2018, a full two weeks sooner. Nintendo has also taken the time to provide a nintendo.com listing the game, which offers the following details:
Get a Cardio Workout at Home or On the Go with Fitness Boxing for Nintendo Switch
Get off the couch and get moving with fun, boxing-based rhythmic exercises set to the instrumental beats of songs by popular artists, including Lady Gaga, Pitbull and Kesha. You can personalize your workouts by selecting from different fitness goals. Train your way, whether you’re on your own, with a friend, at home, or on the go! Now you can work out anytime, anywhere on the Nintendo Switch system!
Get down your boxing basics while getting down to instrumental versions of 20 unlockable hit songs, including “Party Rock Anthem” by LMFAO, “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepson, and “Sugar” by Maroon 5. Punch and squat while gripping the Joy-Con controllers to get your whole body moving—no additional gym equipment required!

If you prefer to work out with a buddy, you can use two sets of Joy-Con controllers or share a pair to enjoy working out cooperatively or test your skills by facing off against each other in a virtual ring!
