Nintendo is heading back into the fitness business with Ring Fit Adventure, a new game where you strap a Joy-Con onto your leg, put another in a big squeezy new peripheral and flail about like nobody's watching.
Long story short: Ring Fit Adventure is the kind of bizarre-yet-novel thing we're used to seeing from Nintendo.More news: Liberal election plane damaged after media bus drives under wing
Ring Fit Adventure is a fitness-themed, turn-based role-playing game with a body building dragon as its main villain. As you can see in the trailer, Ring Fit Adventure is controlled entirely by performing physical tasks, a return to the days of Wii Sports. The Leg Strap is attached to the player's upper left leg, while the Ring-Con is held in both hands. Perhaps not exactly how you planned to make people smile, but you did it. Players can attack and defend using more than 40 Fit Skills, which are exercise moves. Adventure mode is designed as a natural way to keep players motivated to play and get exercise regularly as they progress through the game world and defeat enemies. While the Leg-Strap is simply strapped to your thigh, the Ring-Con itself is a flexible device that provides resistance, and respond to the player's movements and seems to record any pressure applied to it.
Called the Ring-Con, it is a rubber fitness band that you can place a Joy-Con controller into in order to interact with dedicated game, Ring Fit Adventure. The Simple mode allows you do quick exercises targeting specific muscle groups, but for something a little more in-depth, there's also a Minigame mode.More news: US Democrats pressure Republicans by advancing gun control bills
The better you perform an exercise, the more damage you inflict, and there's even an elemental system of sorts, where different enemies are weak against certain exercises.More news: US Open 2019: Serena Williams criticises 'inexcusable' performance in final defeat
