This is a running and jumping adventure game with a difference. You control your character with the circular plastic Ring-Con in your hands and Leg-Strap on your leg. The game can then tell how much you are moving and relate that to progress in the game.

Unlike other fitness games, though, this offers a video game challenge as well as an aerobic work out. You explore a fantasy adventure world to defeat a bodybuilding dragon and his minions using real-life exercises in Ring Fit Adventure. Jog in place to traverse grass-swept plains, do overhead shoulder presses to attack enemies, and strike some yoga poses to refill your health meter.

It's a large fantasy world where you take on enemies with over 60 real-life exercise. Jog, Sprint, and high knee through over 100 levels in more than 20 worlds. Gather ingredients to craft in-game smoothies for temporary stat boosts. Earn in-game currency and unlock stat-boosting gear.

You can choose whether you want to go for a longer exercise session with bigger adventures or just drop in for some shorter exercise minigames suitable for most skill levels and schedules. It will also estimate your pulse rate with the built-in IR Motion Camera. And if you want to develop your own routine to follow, you can do that too as well as compare your progress through the game with the rest of the family.
