With enough imagination, that fancy Ring-Con accessory that comes with your snazzy copy of Ring Fit Adventure could be anything. Sure, it could be just the high-tech Pilates ring it's supposed to be, or it could be Captain America's shield, a discus, a frisbee, a hula hoop... It could even be a steering wheel, which conveniently leads us on to the point we're actually trying to make here.
Yes, one particularly imaginative so-and-so has gone to the bother of using it with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. If you don't fancy splashing out for that super cool Mario Kart Switch Wheel we shared recently, the Ring-Con could work as a decent makeshift alternative.
As you might expect, it doesn't work quite as well as you'd like, but it's still a fun little way to pass the time. YouTube user Rando Media has shared the following video, explaining that steering and tricks work "flawlessly", but thanks to the Joy-Con being stuck in the Ring-Con's grip, there's no real way to drift or use items.
If you're wanting to try this at home, you'll need to ensure that your auto acceleration option is turned on, otherwise you'll be left sitting on the starting grid looking like you've just turned up for the world's worst soapbox race.
Now then, excuse us while we head off for a spot of multiplayer Mario Kart Fitness Deluxe. What could possibly go wrong?

Weird flex but ok.
Are you going to review this at all? The game?
it's fun when you're 5 I guess. Doesn't work for me. Well each his own
I'm sure Nintendo will release a patch to solve the problem.
Pull the ring to accelerate and push in to brake.
Nintendo: “Your Joycons are drifting so you bought a new pair, but what to do with the old ones? Now you can attached them to the ring-con for your exercise enjoyment.”
What an opportune timing Nintendo. It’s like they planned this.
@jarvismp Yep, it'll be up on the home page very very soon! 🙂
Edit: Here it is!
@ryancraddock excellent, it does actually look worth a punt.
This is really cool, actually! I so want to try that with people during my Twitch live streams just for the fun of it XD
When will Nintendo update Mario Kart 8 Deluxe to allow anyone to upload your racing videos on Youtube?
