We’re still rounding up odd bits and bobbles from Tuesday’s Nintendo Direct and have regrettably not yet reported on the greatest announcement of the bunch. The tale of one of the most iconic manga protagonists of all-time, full of violence, hope, and so much punching, finally comes to Switch — to help get you fit! Fitness Boxing: Fist of the North Star is the unexpected but perfect crossover between the legendary anime and the recent fitness game series.



Learn how to punch and move from Kenshiro himself in training before taking on a host of baddies in Battle Mode. You can even take on iconic FotNS enemies in Boss Battle mode to really show your prowess! While the punches here may not fly out as fast or as furiously as the Hokuto Shinken, the rhythmic movement will give you a good workout — and before you know it, You Are Already Healthy.

Fitness Boxing: Fist of the North Star releases in March 2023. Stay tuned for future details.
