Leading video game publisher and developer BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. today announced that ACTIVE LIFE Outdoor Challenge will release for Nintendo Switch on September 3rd, 2021, and will be available exclusively at Target stores and Target.com in the United States. Originally released for the Nintendo Wii, ACTIVE LIFE Outdoor Challenge returns to invite players to engage in real-life exercises while completing a variety of fun, family-friendly mini-games.
Featuring 16 games in total with activities ranging from river rafting to log jumping, ACTIVE LIFE Outdoor Challenge provides a fun fitness experience great for players of all skill levels to enjoy together. Players can expect to work up a sweat with the game’s simple, yet unique controls, which feature a pack-in Leg Strap that uses the Nintendo Switch Joy-Con to measure players’ movements. ACTIVE LIFE Outdoor Challenge detects a wide variety of players’ activities, including running, jumping, squatting, and stomping, through the left Joy-Con, which is inserted into the Leg Strap and worn on the left leg. The player will also hold the right Joy-Con in their right hand to measure the arm’s accompanying movements.
ACTIVE LIFE Outdoor Challenge comes with two Leg Straps, and those with two sets of Joy-Cons can enjoy competitive and cooperative minigames with their families and friends in Multiplayer mode. Each minigame lasts between one to three minutes, and with the vibrant and colorful animations, players can bring the outdoors inside for an engaging and active gameplay experience.
“ACTIVE LIFE Outdoor Challenge consists of a unique, heart-pumping set of minigames, making it the perfect customizable workout for families of all ages,” said Summer Nguyen, Associate Brand Manager at BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. “Players can expect an immersive workout experience by turning in-game movements into real-world exercises which are a fun, safe, and easy way to stay active and moving!”
