Ring Fit Adventure could give Switch its Wii Fit breakout

Nintendo's Ring Fit Adventure is like Wii Fit for the Switch

Ring Fit Adventure turns real-life exercises and fitness activities into moves in-game.

Nintendo's unusual new Switch experience has a name: Ring Fit Adventure. 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.

Outside of the main adventure, Quick Play mode is a great way to enjoy Ring Fit Adventure in shorter bursts, allowing players to jump in and out of play.

Obviously, Ring Fit Adventure isn't a miracle device that will magically make you fit.

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.


Based on Express Online's hands and legs-on experience with the game, Ring Fit Adventure has the feel of a fully-fledged albeit casual role-playing game, complete with sublime visuals, turn-based battles, multiple worlds and a levelling up system. Moving, attacking, and more is accomplished by moving the new Ring-Con and Leg Strap. Actions that the player performs in-game will earn experience for their character, with level-ups boosting stats and unlocking new Fit Skills that can be used in battle.

The game looks like a classic fantasy adventure where players control a hero that has to fight through enemies to save the land from a bodybuilder dragon.

"I hope that once players hold the Ring-Con, put on the Leg Strap and start playing for themselves, they'll be immersed in a journey that will keep them motivated to come back and have fun exercising every day".

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.
