Shape Up is a newly-announced fitness game from Ubisoft that aims to actually be fun to play, as opposed to something of a chore you do grudgingly because it’s that or succumb to hypertension.

During its E3 2014 conference, Ubisoft showed off a couple of challenges from the game, such as a push up race – the player characters on screen were burdened by bigger and more impressive objects on their backs, and it genuinely looked kind of fun.

A cardio demo was also shown and did not look easy – hopefully there’ll be some intro challenges for certain out-of-shape games journalists.

The Xbox One exclusive uses Kinect, so, well. I hope you have one, now that Microsoft has dropped the mandatory thing.

Look at some videos. With your eyeballs. VIDEO GAMES.
