REDMOND, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--A new type of adventure game is headed to the Nintendo Switch system on Oct. 18 – one that incorporates fun new accessories that turn real-world movement into in-game actions in a quest to save the world. Nintendo just revealed a new video that takes a closer look at this new experience for Nintendo Switch.
In the Ring Fit Adventure game, players explore an expansive world, battling enemies along the way using real-life exercises to perform in-game attacks. The new Ring-Con and Leg Strap accessories that are included with the game respond to the player’s real-world movements, allowing the game to turn them into in-game actions, like jogging in place to move your character through the world using the attached Leg Strap, or squeezing the Ring-Con and turning that strength exercise into powerful attacks. By playing the game daily, players can regularly work out various parts of their bodies. With additional mini-games and workout routines, Ring Fit Adventure is a fun experience for players of various skill levels and lifestyles.
Yeah, I'm hoping they release it at a standard $60, but a bit more would be alright. Certainly not anything outlandish like $100 or I'll probably have to pass unless the software is really feature packed.
I'm thinking they'll want to keep it affordable... something that adds more diverse appeal to the Switch platform itself.
Yeah, what was up with the actors? Haha. I kept wondering while watching this how the whole process of making one of these videos must go. Nintendo contracts the project to an advertising company, who has a film division, and then their costume person picks out the athletic outfits...
...something went wrong with this one. It's like one of those weird videos that Adult Swim will show at 3:30am. 😅
If it sells well, I wonder if they'll put some Ring-Con support into other games. Could be neat to have some additional calorie burning modes in other popular Nintendo software. Mario Kart should be easy since it's already a wheel.
