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

Amnesia Collection

What is Ring Fit Adventure, exactly?

Ring Fit Adventures (snigger) requires two new peripherals, the Ring-Con (chuckle) and Leg Strap (honk!) accessories which "enable players to explore and battle in the game world using the power of real-world exercise".

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.

Ring Fit Adventure is a fitness-themed, turn-based role-playing game with a body building dragon as its main villain.

People use LOL an bad lot these days but do not mean it but I am now getting very odd looks across the office as I have laughed very, very loudly at the two rather scary people cheerfully chanting "Ring Fit Adventures" in this new video from Nintendo.

India says it prefers direct talks between Afghanistan government and the Taliban
That is the time when a hijacked plane slammed into the World Trade Center's north tower on September 11, 2001. The 9/11 anniversary is a sensitive day in Afghanistan's capital and one on which attacks have occurred.

While you're moving through the level, monsters will sometimes block your progress and kick off Fit Battles.

Throughout the years, various companies have made attempts at turning exercise into games, with one of the most notable examples being Nintendo's Wii Fit.

Ring Fit Adventure + the Ring-Con and Leg Strap launch on October 18th, 2019 for $79.99. The game provides direction to players about how to perform movements correctly in order to deal more damage to enemies. Make it past the two-minute mark in the video below, and you'll see that this is actually an RPG disguised as a fitness game.

It is, however, a lot more enjoyable than flailing around in a sweaty gym, especially if you lack confidence and find exercise boring.

While Ring Fit Adventure does feature a sort of quick play mode, the main draw here is a full-fledged adventure that nearly looks like something you'd see out of bizarro-world Dragon Quest.
