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

Nintendo Switch Update Virtual Reality

Nintendo Switch Update Virtual Reality

We've embedded a video above for you to check out should you want to see Ring Fit Adventure in action, but we have to warn you: you're probably going to cringe a little.

Ring Fit Adventure comes out on October 18 and will require a Nintendo Switch console, although it appears it will not work with the Joy-Con-less Nintendo Switch Lite.

Two peripherals were revealed today: Ring-Con and Leg Strap. The game provides direction to players about how to perform the exercise correctly, with proper form and posture dealing more damage to enemies.

While you're moving through the level, monsters will sometimes block your progress and kick off Fit Battles. Conducting an attack on an enemy will require players to perform more than 40 core and yoga exercises.

In a seven-minute long video today, we're taken through a demo of Ring Fit Adventure and what kind of content players can expect. As exergames go, Ring Fit Adventure seems fairly fleshed out. This lets everyone enjoy a quick workout in different ways, like taking turns with friends and family in mini-games to compete for high scores.

In addition to the the standard adventure mode, there are a number of quick play modes as well. High scores are recorded so everyone can challenge their personal bests. The game even includes a "Silent" mode for people who live in an upstairs apartment or don't want to make a lot of noise.

Ring Fit Adventure is an upcoming Nintendo Switch game that will use the Ring Con, a circular controller that employs the Joy-Cons from the system to detect certain motions during the game.
