Introducing ‘Ring Fit Adventure,’ Nintendo’s Exercise Action Adventure for Switch

Nintendo’s “new experience” for Switch is ‘Ring Fit Adventure’, an unusual, ring-filled, and exercise-focused take on the action adventure genre

Last week, Nintendo teased a mysterious “new experience” for Switch. In our first report on it, we jokingly asked, “Why can’t this be an open world, motion-controlled yoga rhythm action game?”

It turns out that we weren’t too far from the truth.

Nintendo has now fully revealed this new experience to be Ring Fit Adventure, an exercise-focused title that “turns a typical adventure game on its head as players squat, press and flex their way through challenges designed for a wide range of body types and levels of fitness experience.” To make this unique exercise gameplay possible, players attach their Joy-con to the new Ring-con accessory, “a flexible electronic device that provides resistance, and uses the Joy-Con to respond to the player’s movements.”

Ring Fit Adventure is more than just another motion-controlled exercise game. Instead, it’s a full-fledged adventure, complete with a story, a world to explore, and RPG elements. Nick Chavez, Nintendo’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, said that “Ring Fit Adventure combines gaming and physical activity in a way that incentivizes people to keep coming back for more, to further both the story and their own fitness goals.”

Beyond the adventure mode, there’s also plenty of other modes focused primarily on simple exercise. There’s sets of exercises tailored specifically to individual body parts, along with some general practice routines as well. There’s even a “Silent” mode, which emphasizes quieter movements to ensure that apartment-dwellers don’t drive all their downstairs neighbors insane.

Overall, it’s certainly an extremely unique project. Check it out in all of its active, exercise-filled glory in the full reveal trailer below.
