Last week Nintendo released a video that showed a bunch of people using a ring and a leg strap, with Joy-Con attached, where they were doing a series of exercises and while most people assumed it was all about the fitness, I don’t think anyone expected this. Say hello to Ring Fit Adventure:
In the Ring Fit Adventure game, players explore an expansive world, battling enemies along the way using real-life exercises to perform in-game attacks. The new Ring-Con and Leg Strap accessories that are included with the game respond to the player’s real-world movements, allowing the game to turn them into in-game actions, like jogging in place to move your character through the world using the attached Leg Strap, or squeezing the Ring-Con and turning that strength exercise into powerful attacks.
By playing the game daily, players can regularly work out various parts of their bodies. With additional mini-games and workout routines, Ring Fit Adventure is a fun experience for players of various skill levels and lifestyles.
“Nintendo is always looking for ways to surprise people with one-of-a-kind, fresh experiences,” said Nick Chavez, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Ring Fit Adventure combines gaming and physical activity in a way that incentivizes people to keep coming back for more, to further both the story and their own fitness goals.”
“Nintendo is always thinking of new ways to entertain players and create fresh experiences,” said Kamon Yoshimura, Managing Director of Nintendo Australia. “Ring Fit Adventure for Nintendo Switch brings together fitness and gaming in a way that motivates players to have fun exercising, immersing themselves in a journey that sees them play and exercise alongside the story.”
The game is out this October 18, with a price of $124.95, orders are due to come soon.
