Ring Fit Adventure - New Switch Fitness Game

Only Nintendo could make an adventure game where you need to exercise in order to battle enemies. And I don't mean just waggling arms around. Watch the video. You'll see.

Release of 18/October, so that's one more to the ever growing list of games for that month.

Man, it'd be easy to scoff at this... but I think it looks pretty neat! I want to work on improving my fitness and this could be a fun way of starting out.

The Verge has had a play and they're positive about the experience. The pricing is fairly high, though; $79.99 which may turn out to be around £75?

But, yeah, I'm interested :-).

These presenters are actually serial killers

Can't believe he said BUST A MOVE either. I thought the ECHO TITLES were weird enough.

I kind of want it :lol:

Yeah, it's actually quite a neat idea to get people into fitness. Much the same as how Wii Fit did it with those balance games, except this also includes the stretches and other exercises as part of it.

They’ve crossed BOTW with Wii Fit? :slol:

This looks genius to me though. Ignoring the presenters (Jesus christ :lol:) this looks really well realised and as someone getting back into fitness at the moment, this looks ideal for adding abit of variety to what I’m currently doing.

My only complaint is the price, which looks a little high but I guess it’s the equivalent of a full price game with some decent kit on top. Still a little high to me though-based on the US price, haven’t seen a U.K. price. On the other hand, the production values look pretty high. Surprisingly so.

Imagine the meltdown if it turned out that this is what Retro had been working on :lol:

Impressions are out:

https://www.theverge.com/2019/9/12/2086 ... lease-date


This seems to suggest a 90-120 hour campaign:

A Nintendo rep told me that if you played for an hour a day, it’d take between three to four months to finish the campaign.


Which is great.

That actually does sound great, a lot of the appeal of this will be if they keep the game part of it fresh and interesting. If its a proper full on game, just with a movement based control scheme I could be very interested.

The impressions I’ve read suggest a proper, full on RPG.

There’s also a host of quickplay and mini game modes in addition to the main mode.

Everything they’ve shown so far suggests they’ve devoted a fair old amount of resource to this, although they haven’t actually said which team worked on it.

Sorry Jawa, I’d even read your post as that’s where I first saw the price :lol: :fp:
