Ring Fit Adventure could give Switch its Wii Fit breakout

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.

Frictional Games has announced via YouTube that the Amnesia Collection is available to play on the Nintendo Switch, today.

Called the Ring-Con, it is a rubber fitness band that you can place a Joy-Con controller into in order to interact with dedicated game, Ring Fit Adventure. Adventure mode is designed as a natural way to motivate players to keep playing and exercising regularly, progressing through the game world while also levelling up their real-world fitness. One Joy-Con attaches to the ring while the other goes on a player's leg with the included leg strap. The Switch's two Joy-Con controllers slot into these accessories to track your movement as you play.

The game puts you in a world that's been invaded by a body-building dragon named Dragaux. Players can attack and defend using more than 40 Fit Skills, which are exercise moves divided into arms, abs, legs and yoga categories. 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.

You can adjust the overall intensity of the exercise to fit your current fitness level and how much sweating you want to do on your living room carpet.

Nintendo has officially unveiled the Ring Fit line of fitness devices that work with Nintendo Switch. We'll find out if that's the case soon enough, as it's out on Nintendo Switch on October 18th.
