ZUMBA® BURN IT UP! available now for digital pre-order on Switch in the Nintendo eShop
ZUMBA® BURN IT UP! Coming to Nintendo Switch November 19th
Zumba: Burn it Up! will appeal to the hardcore fans of the workout program and for those who want to do some serious cardio. While it's not going to win points for its lack of killer top tracks or limited modes, it's a great time for those serious about their exercise goals.
Ultimately, Zumba Burn It Up! knows its audience, and thankfully there’s really nothing much to complain about with this new iteration; it’s a perfectly fine addition to a series that continues to truck along relatively painlessly. A bit more variation with the songs would have been nice, and whilst we appreciate that this is targeted to people who likely already have a certain degree of fitness, the game could do a much better job at easing in newcomers.
Those who are familiar with or already participate in Zumba classes are going to love the familiarity of Zumba: Burn it Up and the distraction-free access to the routines. Those who aren't, however, will have to get past an initial period of ineptitude while you figure out the moves. I'd personally rather do that at home than at an actual Zumba class, but with nothing here beyond the energetic exercises to keep you motivated, actual classes will serve you better if you're in it for the long haul.
