Description

This anime series is directed and written by Junpei Morita, with motion capture by SOLID CUBE and music composed by Yūsuke Shirato. You can unlock tickets which can be used for a specific trainer’s item, but the ability to purchase those items are unlocked separately and completely at random. Not only is it the time of year for sharing and caring (and we’ll definitely need some extra caring with the year we’ve had), but it’s also one of the only times of the year it’s somewhat acceptable to become a gluttonous pig… and I say this with a lot of experience.

I play with my gf, 29yo, and she has strong cardiovascular and abdominal fitness, but zero aggressive athletic coordination. I got back into Ring Fit this week and I JUST looked up Fitness Boxing 2 because I remembered it exists. These tracks are catchy enough during the workout to keep you going, and the fact that you can swap tracks between different exercises is a great touch. Fitness Boxing 2 is a good alternative to Ring Fit Adventure if you don't want any additional equipment.The exercises themselves can be engaging, and it’s nice to keep track of your progress (and the game does give you a fitness age that seems arbitrary, I kept getting in the low 20s although I am far from that), but the amount of unlockables and achievements (which were added to this game and not present in the first) aren’t really enough to keep you going if you don’t like the thought of constantly throwing punches. This game replicates most of what I was doing (basic striking, I'm no boxer, it was purely just to have a little variety outside of the usual workouts). The default coach is Lin, and there is a total of 5 other coaches (3 female and 2 male), each with customizable appearances. It makes me wonder if this was a rushed project to capitalize on the home workout craze due to COVID. The true sequel to FitnessBoxing is obviously FiNC Home Fit, which is apparently only available in Japan.

Each article costs tickets earned through achievements, but not to worry – there’s no shortage of tickets, especially if you play regularly. I think it’s important to add that these issues were not totally consistent during my playthrough, but they occurred often enough to become annoying — I ended up adjusting my playstyle to minmize their impacts. Instead, Fitness Boxing 2 feels more like a continuation, and one in which some of the fitness aspects are rather off. It’s not checking to see if you’ve done the uppercut properly, because it’s got no way of telling that. The latter half of the game's combos (which I've not yet unlocked) are continuing to get harder and faster in their action strings, which is adds more sweatiness and fun.This mode has been incredibly useful for me, especially during actions that makes me unbalanced due to my dyspraxia, I also appreciate that the game asks if you wish to practice if you play a workout with an action you haven’t done before or if you have a habit of missing a particular movement. Susurrus your data transfers, but you have to start from the beginning and earn the different workouts again. I've been playing the FB2 demo and restarting it everyday with a new User account and playing through all the 10 uses.

In the first game, instructor outfits were unlocked when you hit certain milestones, but some of these were frankly ridiculous: throwing a total of 198,000 punches to unlock a new top felt ever so slightly disproportionate. While Ring Fit focuses on working out my muscles, Fitness Boxing does a much better job at getting my heart rate up while consistently burning calories.Still, the customization options are nice and are a decent reason to keep coming back and provide a sense of progression. Either way, the majority of the exercises can be quite intense, but I honestly had a lot of fun doing them with the variety of punches and movements. Hot ‘N Cold, YMCA, September, and House on the Hill have a distinct lack of lyrics and have clearly not been licensed but covered by other artists. That is if you’re in the market for an indoor and portable workout that you can walk away from with a smile. Fans of the original Fitness Boxing will feel at home with this sequel, if a little disappointed that it isn't quite the evolution it could have been.

The first Fitness Boxing had 20 songs, and the general theme was pop: you had the likes of Lady Gaga, Kelly Clarkson, Justin Bieber, Maroon 5 and co. You can set up goals for your daily workouts (upper body, full body, fat burn, etc) and the game will provide you with a customized list of exercises which your trainer will walk you through while somewhat recognizable but ultimately bland renditions of various pop-songs play in the background. While more new clothes are still unlocked over time, you at least get a generous enough helping of tickets at the start of the game and you’d really have to try hard to run out of them.

This suggests that there’s DLC to come, so with any luck that’ll mean more songs, and with even more luck they’ll be free because it would be a bit of a joke to charge us actual money for music that sounds like a 14-year-old learned it on their Yamaha. And if you think something is inconvenient or uncomfortable, just know, this won’t be fixed on the full version. It’s hard to think of anyone who’d be a big fan of What Makes You Beautiful by One Direction and Venus by Bananarama, but also be well into Born to be Wild by Steppenwolf and It’s My Life by Bon Jovi. The game was released on December 20, 2018 in Japan by Imagineer, December 21, 2018 in PAL territories and January 4, 2019 in North America by Nintendo.
