Family Trainer, a game designed to pick up and play for players of all ages to work out, has been announced by Bandai Namco for the Nintendo Switch for a September 3, 2021 release. The game will combine both the Nintendo Joy Con Controllers and a Leg Strap to let players use their whole body during the fifteen minigames that are available.
There's also a multiplayer mode that will be available where players can go head-to-head to see who can either work together to achieve a common goal or to get the highest score to see who is the best trainer in the family. Puns, amirite?
What mini-games will be available?
As for what mini-games will be available, there will apparently be fifteen of them:
- Canoe Downstream
- Hurdle Run
- Jump Rope
- Log Dodge
- Log Jump
- Mole Panic
- Pipe Slider
- Rail Car Adventure
- Seesaw Fight
- Speed Roller
- Stone Pillar Conveyer
- Trick Boarder
- Waterfall Climb
- Water Trampoline
Going by the trailer there will also be three modes for Single Player: Outdoor Adventure, Exercise Training, and Free Play. The Exercise Training mode will have activities for players such as Full Body Training, 5 Minute Easy Exercises, 5 Minute Hard Exercises, Relaxed Exercises, and Upper body Exercises. That's just what shown, so it looks as though players will have a lot to work through if they are serious about exercising using Family Trainer and their Nintendo Switch.
