Nintendo's Ring Fit Adventure is like Wii Fit for the Switch

Nintendo is heading back into the fitness business with Ring Fit Adventure, a new game where you strap a Joy-Con onto your leg, put another in a big squeezy new peripheral and flail about like nobody's watching.

The main difference with "Ring Fit Adventure" and Nintendo's past fitness products is that "Ring Fit" promises an adventure game with a storyline.

What is Ring Fit Adventure, exactly?

With the Ring-Con in hand and Leg Strap attached, players explore more than 20 different worlds and battle monsters using over 40 "Fit Skills". One Joy-Con attaches to the ring while the other goes on a player's leg with the included leg strap.

So instead of casting a Fire spell or swinging a sword, Ring Fit adventurers inflict damage by flexing the Fit-Con, performing squats, or executing a flawless warrior pose.

State warns of vaping dangers
Vaping culture has spread quickly in Bahrain with vape shops mushrooming across the kingdom, ensuring easy access to all users. Cases of serious lung illness potentially caused by vaping - primarily in teens - have been cropping up around the nation.

You'll also need to defend against incoming attacks by pushing the Fit-Con against your tummy and activating your core. Actions in the game will require players to perform movements like running in place to, well, run.

The stages we played were all fairly short - clocking in between 5-7 minutes each - but the intensity is high because you're always on the move.

That has led to not only the intuitive Wii Remote design but also the Wii console's Balance Board, used in tandem with its popular "Wii Fit" games, and the self-assembly cardboard controller housings and virtual reality kits that form the Nintendo Labo line.

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. The game will take up 2.8 GB of space on your Switch, which isn't much at all by today's standards.
