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.
People use LOL an terrible 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. Last week's teaser looked similar to something you'd see in the Wii era, a new sort of Wii Fit successor would have been a safe guess of sorts. Attached to your left thigh is the Leg Strap, which measures things like running speed, squat movements and knee raises.
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.
You also get an official leg strap with the game, with both tracking player movement through numerous fitness activities. Players can attack and defend using more than 40 Fit Skills, which are exercise moves.
If turn-based battles focus on strength exercises, then overworld exploration is much more cardio based.
You can even sail over stretches of water by squeezing the Fit-Con against your stomach and performing ab twists! With additional mini-games and workout routines, Ring Fit Adventure is a fun experience for players of various skill levels and lifestyles.
Nintendo's odd new Switch experience has a name: Ring Fit Adventure. Perhaps not exactly how you planned to make people smile, but you did it. By activating this mode, jogging-style exercises are swapped out for ones that are a little quieter, allowing players to keep their legs active without a heavy impact on the floor.
Back in 2018 the company expressed the desire to bring the game to the console, and today you can play it.
