Nintendo Announce Ring-Fit Adventure, with the new Ring-Con controller
Let’s get Switch-ical… look, puns are hard
A new type of adventure game is headed to Nintendo Switch on 18th October.
In Ring Fit Adventure, players will explore an expansive world, battling enemies along the way using real-life fitness exercises. The new Ring-Con and Leg Strap accessories that are included with the game detect and measure the player’s real-world movements, and turn them into in-game actions. Jogging in place will move your character through the world using the attached Leg Strap, or squeeze the Ring-Con and turn that into a powerful attack.
By playing the game daily, players will 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.
Some of us have been wondering when the next Wii-Fit would come along, and honestly we’re pretty excited to see this come along. Just don’t do it in handheld mode on the train.
Ring Fit Adventure launches on 18 October with an RRP of AU$124.95 (probably about $130 NZD?), and includes the game plus the Ring-Con and Leg Strap accessories.
