Nintendo's New Fitness Game Puts Joy-Cons in Strange Places

Amnesia Collection Amnesia Collection drops onto the Switch eShop out of the shadows

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.

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.

Two peripherals were revealed today: Ring-Con and Leg Strap.

The game takes players an "expansive world" with enemies to battle through real-world physical exercise.

Ring Fit Adventure 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. You'll explore the world by jogging in place, using the Ring-Con to perform certain movement abilities. Conducting an attack on an enemy will require players to perform more than 40 core and yoga exercises.

Trump said the decision to invite the Taliban to Camp David was his, and so was the call to cancel it. The UN repeatedly calls for urgent need to seize opportunities for peace in the region.

In addition to the the standard adventure mode, there are a number of quick play modes as well. The Simple mode allows you do quick exercises targeting specific muscle groups, but for something a little more in-depth, there's also a Minigame mode.

You can adjust the overall intensity of the exercise to fit your current fitness level and how much sweating you want to do on your living room carpet.

Here is the game's first trailer-it looks like a surprisingly decent use of RPG mechanics, given the fitness angle-along with a demonstration of its dedicated hardware, called the Ring-Con.

What is Ring Fit Adventure, exactly?
