It all works in concert with the new Ring-Con and Leg Strap accessories, each of which use the Switch's Joy-Con to track the way your body's moving (the former is that circle thing Nintendo showed off in an odd teaser video last week). This will let them continue every day at an activity level that's comfortable for them.aunches at retail on 18th October, and includes the game plus the Ring-Con and Leg Strap accessories.The Adventure mode featured in Ring Fit Adventure takes place in a colourful world where adventure meets fitness. Along the way, enemies will appear, ready for battle. When you encounter enemies, you'll do battle by performing color-coded exercises.

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.

Ring Fit Adventure turns real-life exercises and fitness activities into moves in-game.

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. There's also a leg strap for the other Joy-Con (below, left), so that it can detect the movement of your leg.
