Aug 22, 2019 Best-Selling Boxing-Inspired Workout Title Launched Today in the PlayStation Store in Japan LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--FitXR, a pioneer in VR fitness games, today launched BoxVR its award-winning, boxing-inspired workout game for PlayStation® VR (PSVR) in Japan. Already a hit on the PlayStation Store in North American and Europe and on Steam and Oculus, BoxVR is now available to download in the PlayStation Store in Japan and is priced at 3200 yen; the official launch trailer can be found here. Described as “Guitar Hero meets studio boxing workout,” BoxVR places the player in a virtual gym, with the goal of throwing, dodging and deflecting an array of punches, parries, and other moves set to music. Scoring is based on finesse and timing, as well as intensity of movements, rather than sheer strength. Unlike fitness games of the past, BoxVR was designed in partnership with a team of professional fitness instructors boasting more than fifty years of combined experience, and features a wide range of choreographed, rhythm-based workout routines at increasingly challenging levels. It also tracks calories burned and other aspects of performance by session, day, week, etc. “I’ve worked on a lot of games over the past 20 years, from Batman Arkham Asylum to LittleBigPlanet, and BoxVR has been the most rewarding to design and build,” said Mark Stephenson, Head of Game Design at FitXR. “For PSVR we’ve tripled down on one of the big reasons BoxVR has been such a hit with Steam and Oculus users: the breadth and depth of content, enabling players of all kinds to mix and match songs and routines to suit their specific tastes and workout intensities.” Primary features and content in the PSVR version of BoxVR include: 50+ New Music Tracks have been added, bringing the total at launch to 110.
