Ring Fit Adventure is the Nintendo Switch’s new fitness experience

Star Wars Pinball

Nintendo chose two of the most overly enthusiastic people to talk about just how awesome the game and the Ring-Con are.

Two peripherals were revealed today: Ring-Con and Leg Strap.

Ring Fit Adventure will bring players into an expansive world, battling enemies along a path by using real-world exercises as "attacks".

The video game maker unveiled on Thursday "Ring Fit Adventure", which is sold with a new piece of hardware - a squeezable electronic ring that senses pressure. The different challenges require players to squat, jog in place, stretch and so on. It's pretty straightforward: by sliding Joy-Con controllers into the Ring-Con and leg strap, the game can track your movements and actions and translate them into the Ring Fit Adventure game.

So instead of casting a Fire spell or swinging a sword, Ring Fit adventurers inflict damage by flexing the Fit-Con, performing squats, or executing a ideal warrior pose.

You can even sail over stretches of water by squeezing the Fit-Con against your stomach and performing ab twists!

Away from the progression-oriented adventure, there are other modes that encourage short bursts of activity, better suited to both targeted exercise and social play.

Ring Fit Adventure comes out for the Nintendo Switch on October 18.

This lets everyone enjoy a quick workout in different ways, like taking turns with friends and family attempting the same mini-games to compete for high scores. You'll need to put in a lot of work to see any results, and it's probably not ideal for anybody looking to make significant muscle gains. The game will take up 2.8 GB of space on your Switch, which isn't much at all by today's standards.
