Experience a New Type of Adventure Game in Ring Fit Adventure, Now Available on Nintendo Switch

Power In-Game Actions Using Real-Life Exercise with the Included Ring-Con and Leg Strap Accessories

REDMOND, Wash., Oct. 18, 2019 – It’s time to embark on a wondrous adventure set in an expansive world filled with daring challenges, powerful enemies and a bodybuilding dragon with an ego to match his oversized muscles. But the twist in this adventure is that you will move through the game world and defeat enemies with attacks based on various real-world exercises using the two included accessories that respond to real-life movement. Starting today, the new Ring Fit Adventure game for the Nintendo Switch system is now available in stores. The two new accessories – Ring-Con and Leg Strap – work with the Joy-Con controllers and allow the game to turn your movements and exercise in the real world, like jogging in place, squats and overhead shoulder presses, into actions in the game.

Ring Fit Adventure is a new way to experience adventure gaming that lets various types of players explore a huge world and battle enemies using real-life movements and exercise,” said Nick Chavez, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “With Ring Fit Adventure, you can tailor exercise to your skill level, and as your skill level grows so too will your progress in this deep adventure game.”

In the game’s main Adventure mode, you’ll journey through numerous colorful worlds, with your ultimate goal to defeat the evil bodybuilding dragon, Dragaux. As you move through each level, you’ll defeat enemies with exercise using your arms, legs and core to earn experience points and collect ingredients to craft in-game smoothies that support your journey. Between battles, you might even encounter some unusual methods of transportation, such as squat-powered launch pads, ab twist-fueled paddleboards and other ways to get around using the power of your real-life exercise moves.

Outside of the main adventure, Quick Play mode is a great way to enjoy Ring Fit Adventure in shorter bursts, allowing you to jump in and out of play. This lets you enjoy the game in different ways, like taking turns with friends and family in various mini-games. Mini-games cover a wide range of activities, from breaking boxes with gusts of air triggered by squeezing the Ring-Con accessory to shaping pottery by performing squats. The game also features online leaderboards* so you can compare your high scores with friends on your Nintendo Switch friends list!

Other modes, like Simple and Sets, offer additional ways to work out. “Simple” lets you choose exercises you want to work on and perform them individually. High scores are recorded so you can keep track of your personal bests. “Sets” provides linked sequences of different exercises designed around a theme or a particular body part. This mode lets you target a muscle group you want to focus on, like legs, shoulders, lower body or core.

Before you start a session of Ring Fit Adventure, you’ll simply insert the left Joy-Con into the Leg Strap accessory and then attach it to your upper-left leg. The Ring-Con accessory, which holds the right Joy-Con, is held in both hands. The Ring-Con accessory is a flexible electronic device that provides resistance and uses the Joy-Con to respond to your movements. Ring Fit Adventure can be adjusted to your level of skill, so even if you don’t have experience with fitness, you can change the exercise intensity at any time to suit your ability. This will let you continue playing every day at an activity level that’s comfortable for you.

The fun nature of Ring Fit Adventure will motivate you to regularly get exercise as you continue your journey and level up your character in the game. And with the power of Nintendo Switch, the game can be taken anywhere, letting you work up a sweat at your own convenience.

Using the Multitask mode, you can use the Ring-Con accessory with an attached Joy-Con controller on its own, without the Nintendo Switch system. While you’re sitting at work or watching TV, you can press and pull the Ring-Con accessory to gain reps. Later, you can sync the Ring-Con accessory with your Ring Fit Adventure game to convert the stored reps into bonuses, such as experience and in-game items for your character.

The game even includes a “Silent” mode for people who live in an upstairs apartment or don’t want to make a lot of noise. By activating this mode, jogging-style exercises are swapped out for ones that are a little quieter, allowing you to keep your legs active without a heavy impact on the floor.

Ring Fit Adventure is now available in stores at a suggested retail price of $79.99. It includes the game card, Ring-Con and Leg Strap accessories. For more information about the game, visit https://ringfitadventure.nintendo.com/.

Embark on a Fantastical Journey to Defeat a Bodybuilding Dragon Using Real-Life Exercise in Ring Fit Adventure for Nintendo Switch

Game Includes Accessories That Transform Physical Force Into Powerful Attacks

REDMOND, Wash., Sept. 12, 2019 – 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.

“Nintendo is always looking for ways to surprise people with one-of-a-kind, fresh experiences,” said Nick Chavez, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Ring Fit Adventure combines gaming and physical activity in a way that incentivizes people to keep coming back for more, to further both the story and their own fitness goals.”

The Adventure mode featured in Ring Fit Adventure takes place across 20 different colorful worlds in a quest to take down Dragaux, a giant, chiseled dragon with an ego to match his oversized muscles. Jog, sprint and do knee-highs in real life to travel through the world, and use the Ring-Con accessory to perform different in-game actions, like jumping, hovering in mid-air or steering a raft on a river.

Ring Fit Adventure turns a typical adventure game on its head as players squat, press and flex their way through challenges designed for a wide range of body types and levels of fitness experience. To play the game, players attach the Joy-Con controllers from their Nintendo Switch system to the included accessories – one to the Ring-Con and one to the Leg Strap. The Leg Strap is attached to the player’s upper left leg, while the Ring-Con is held in both hands. The Ring-Con is a flexible electronic device that provides resistance, and uses the Joy-Con to respond to the player’s movements. Ring Fit Adventure can be adjusted to the player’s level of skill, so even if players don’t have experience with fitness, they can change the exercise intensity to suit their ability. This will let them continue every day at an activity level that’s comfortable for them.

Throughout the adventure, enemies will appear, ready for battle. Players can attack and defend using more than 40 Fit Skills, which are exercise moves. The game provides direction to players about how to perform movements correctly in order to deal more damage to enemies. Actions that the player performs in-game will earn experience for their character, with level-ups boosting stats and unlocking new Fit Skills that can be used in battle. Adventure mode is designed as a natural way to keep players motivated to play and get exercise regularly as they progress through the game world and defeat enemies.

Outside of the main adventure, Quick Play mode is a great way to enjoy Ring Fit Adventure in shorter bursts, allowing players to jump in and out of play. This lets everyone enjoy a quick workout in different ways, like taking turns with friends and family attempting the same mini-games to compete for high scores. Mini-games cover a wide range of activities, from breaking boxes with gusts of air triggered by the Ring-Con to shaping pottery by performing squats.

Other modes like Simple and Set offer additional ways to work out. “Simple” lets players choose exercises they want to work on, and perform them individually. High scores are recorded so everyone can challenge their personal bests. “Set” provides linked sequences of different exercises designed around a theme or a particular body part. This mode is a great way to target a muscle group the player wants to focus on, like legs, shoulders, lower body or core.

The game even includes a “Silent” mode for people who live in an upstairs apartment or don’t want to make a lot of noise. By activating this mode, jogging-style exercises are swapped out for ones that are a little quieter, allowing players to keep their legs active without a heavy impact on the floor.

Ring Fit Adventure, which includes the game and Ring-Con and Leg Strap accessories, will launch for Nintendo Switch on Oct. 18 at a suggested retail price of $79.99*.
