Nintendo has unveiled its latest, non-traditional gaming experience for Nintendo Switch, and just like with Nintendo Labo before it, we're full of intrigue, curiosity, and have been left with several questions.
Yes, this is Ring Fit Adventure, something Nintendo has described as "a new type of adventure game". It uses two accessories - the Ring-Con and the Leg Strap - to let players save the world using actual, real-life exercise routines. Nintendo has truly out-Nintendo'd itself once again.
Feel free to catch up on the lengthy trailer and press release info if you missed it, but for those ready for more, let's take a closer look with these new screenshots and images. We'll start with the lifestyle image collection, so that you can get a good look at what you'll actually be doing with the thing when you pick it up next month.
As for the gameplay itself? Well, you can see some of the action right here, including a cameo from a bodybuilding dragon which, apparently, will stand between you and your goal of saving the world in the adventure portion of the game.
Finally, let's take another look at what you'll find waiting for you in-store. Both accessories come included with the game, all wrapped up in this neat looking box.
Are you liking the look of this? We've got to say, a lot of what we've seen does look like it should be good fun. Let us know in the comments below.
The people playing these games always have the most luxurious homes.
I keep my workouts and video games separate. I know my tag is Chunkboi but I do indeed workout consistently. I was just a little insecure when making my account lol
Six Pack Dragon Lord !!
Nice body 😀 but that silly face..... 🤨
It's a stupid name and it may go the way of Wii Music, but damn it, it's by Nintendo, and Lord knows I need the exercise...
@RupeeClock Notice that they all have the same layout?
I also noticed that they apparently couldn't afford a ceiling.
It's all the same house, except for the one with "slowly to the left"
Guessing it's a hostel where they all live
So if I buy this and use it every single day
Will I look like that fitness dragon in the last screenshot?
If not, then the product is a failure. 2/10 I did not become a world ending dragon that can do 300 pushups all in one set.
@Silly_G IKR? Absolutely silly looking in some aspects, but dammit, it's a Day 1 purchase for me! I love all Ninty's quirky exercise stuff...
Where's Reggie? If his body isn't ready, I'm not getting one.
At first I thought it said Wii Fit Adventure in the title. But it’s clearly says Ring Fit Adventure.
I think the art-style is completely off. I thought it was a Fornite Event.
I love that trainers hair as fire. I wonder if we can change gender or even different hairstyles!
I called it - It is a Pilates ring for 79.99
@Deadlyblack "300" Ha! 1,000! (I blame it on DBZ encouraging my younger self to do silly things. Took a while.)
I'm suprised at how fun this looks. I am disappointed they didn't used the same Wii Fit Trainers from Wii Fit 1,Wii Fit 2, and Smash Bros.
I want that bodybuilder dragon in Smash. Love the design.
I was just recently considering the Fitness Boxing after playing the demo. The game itself didn't hook me, but I thought it was a decent enough work out routine. This looks a lot more like what I was looking for in a workout, and in a game.
I want one myself, and if it turns out that it's a huge flop, that means I can get one super cheap down the line.
Yeah, I'm in
This is super dorky and ridiculous. And I'll be buying it anyway. I'd still like a proper "Switch Fit". I still think the Wii Balance Board was slick and the perfect device for that kind of experience (and snowboarding with it was perfect and so much fun). Make it work with the Switch... I still have mine.
What a load of c..p!
@Desrever Fitness boxing is worth every penny, A good 20 minute workout on fast speed can have you burn about 350 - 500 calories while working out your whole body!
Definitely something to prepare for fit adventure, I hope the highest resistance is good!
1. Find/buy the standalone cartridge.
2. Find an old school iPod mini arm band. Modify it to fit joy con.
3. Buy steering wheel from junk yard. Modify it to hold joy con. It’ll even give you some weight for better training!
@Anti-Matter I think he technically has an 8-pack. (I counted.) And you should make that your avatar pic.
"Ring-Con and the Leg Strap" sounds like a '70s Burt Reynolds movie.
I have my old sketches of muscular Anthro winged Dragon.🤔
Not sure it will be same as that Dragon on Ring Fit Adventures but i might draw it with my own version based on my old sketches.
@Anti-Matter I've seen your prior artwork your good, maybe you can give that 8-pack dragon a better face?
OMG I just found the article with the cringe inducing, nearly vomit inducing, trailer, I can't even.
Yet... I can see myself buying it on clearance at Target next spring. I buy so much plastic, and cardboard, garbage on clearance at Target. Wonderbook anyone?
Ring Fit Trainer for smash
The reality in my house. My eldest would line up their 2 younger siblings as posts, set a marker of where to stand and this would then become a rather expensive game of hoopla with me cringing as a joycon flies across the room.
Aerobies normally get this treatment.
Called it. I was right.
I'm proooobably gonna be convinced to get this one, assuming the price tag isn't stupid. I know I never do enough flexibility workouts anyways, and when I do it's using Wii Fit U so... welp.
I live in a normal sized apartment in the city, not the palace of Versailles. I won’t be getting this.
“And it burns, burns, burns (calories)... The Ring Fit of fire... The Ring Fit of fire.”
@Chunkboi79 what's wrong about being fat? I never work out. That's why I made my profil picture a skinny stick. I was feeling good that day. Lol
@Andors There's nothing wrong with being fat by any means. I just prefer to be a little skinnier. I'm 6' 240lb currently, I basically exclusively lift though so i have a lot of muscle. I've gained like 30 pounds since I got an office job so I just want to cut down. 210 would be an ideal weight for me, especially that was when I had next to no fat on me. Wish me luck
@Chunkboi79 Funny enough, I do all my cardio while playing video games. Riding a stationary bike while playing games makes it go by much faster for me. Can't run, my ol' creeky knees can't take all the constant impact.
@Darthroseman That's a great idea actually! With the switch it would be wayyy easier to actually ride on a bike type machine and play a game!
+1 for The Man in Black reference.
I’m loving the goofy enemies in this, like the exercise ball monsters and the ones in the trailer that look like either yoga mats or magic carpets.
This would have been more exciting if this was a set of accessories for a death race type of game. The ring can obviously do double duty as a steering wheel and a field weapon. The leg sensor strap can record your run through the booby trapped playing field.
Now that is what I call a FIT game.
@Chunkboi79 good luck🤞. I think you are fine like you are. Perhaps your picture lies.
