Started doing 1 hour a day for first 2 months, but tapered off to 15-20mins a day due to holidays and levels being pretty much the same with different variations . Did not beat the main campaign yet.
Got some new abilities like a double jump and new ways to traverse like monkey bars (pull and hold in place above head), use of a handcart, launch pads, para-glider among others.
Minigames stayed the same
Velcro on leg strap gave out a little. Now using single joycon grip controller attachment and put in pocket for more stability. Ring con holding up well; no change in resistance
Skill tree expands at random levels. Best to save up skill points for expansion when you're not eyeing a skill.
Always try to upgrade hearts. You sometimes get random abilities when leveling up (sometimes do higher damage than what's on skill tree).
Believe i got all the exercise types by now. As I level up and through skill tree all abilities are the same, but with higher attack stat.
Story is still lackluster
If you do multi-task mode daily, you'll get more than you need in coins and ingredients.
Gems like Amethyst, Ruby, Sapphire are rare. Save up and use when needed.
Orange fruit and veggies to make exp boosts are rare. Best to save up and only use during boss battles to get that extra exp.
Didn't lose any weight, but did a good job at maintaining it. Feel good and energized throughout the day. 100+ days in a row. Still got more than my money's worth in my opinion. If anything changes from now till i beat the game I'll update the review again.
If you enjoyed Wii Fit series of games, you'll like this one too. Difference is that the accessories are lighter and focus more on cardio than yoga/strength training; although those are included too.
This game is more engaging than wii fit plus. Better progression system through a lengthy adventure mode vs objective based content of wii fit (also included).
Wii fit focuses more on yoga and strength training, while ring fit more on cardio and toning. It's faster paced and encourages more variety.
Amount you'll sweat depends on how active you are before purchasing that game. If you don't go to the gym often you'll more likely sweat more than someone who does. If you already have a daily workout routine this is a nice supplement, pre workout
Going through everything by category/game modes:
Accessories/What's in the box?
Questions you may have
Misc info, Closign thoughts
Accessories/What's in the box?
What you get in the box are Ring-Con, Leg Strap and Ring Fit Adventure game
Ring-con is very sturdy. Resistance is very strong. Had body builder friend try it out and says it's no flimsy at all. He was able to squeeze the Ring-con all the way, but required some effort to do so. Game will make you do more repetitions depending on intensity you set. Padding on the sides are high quality and removable if you want to replace* or wash it. *Nintendo not selling replacements as of this review. Best to wear workout gloves (not included) to increase longevity of the padding. Also may provide you better grip.
Leg Strap is basic. Velcro is strong. If you have it cinched up tight initially it will not slide off during workout
Game comes in cartridge form in a standard Switch case.
You are able to adjust difficulty in game (more extensive description on this later). Makes you do more repetitions, motions/movements.
You can exaggerate movement but you're only cheating yourself since the primary focus of the game fitness. When doing ab type exercises, the game tells you to tighten your abs. Game also ask you to breath in/out certain times, adjust your posture. You can ignore these suggestions, but won't get workout the game intended.
A lengthy campaign. Nintendo states if you play 1 hour a day it'll take 3 to 4 months to complete. I've only played for a a few days as of this review. If any drastic changes in 4 months (after i beat the final boss) i'll update this review. If i decided to give up on adventure mode before that happens i'll update and tell you why.
You're minding your own business until you hear a ring in a middle of a field that tell you to free it and save the world. The world already seemed peaceful, but whatever... you free it anyway.
Ends up you freed Dragaux, a muscular dragon creature that's bent on taking over the world.
Ring, a talking object that sealed him is also released. Apparently he trained Dragaux and he turned evil for some reason so had to use himself to seal him.
You then partner up with Ring to defeat Dragaux and save the world
More than half the time you're jogging and grab items/coins
Water, mud, stairs and reverse treadmill will make you jog at higher intensity or left up legs higher to get through
Jumping platforms like springs will make you do squats, minor jumps will makes you tilt the ring-con
You collect coins/collectables along the way by pressing in/squeezing ring-con to shoot crates, and pulling out ring con to vacuum them in
At points through your jog you'll encounter enemies which promps a RPG based battle system
There are different colored enemies. You match colored exercises for super effective attacks
The more intensity you put into workouts has more power. Some attacks deal damage to multiple enemies
Attacks are on a cool down, so can't do the same moves repeatedly
You can also use health items (smoothies) which you squeeze beforehand
There's also a basic upgrade tree to boost up your stats/abilities
You also level up by doing exercises/defeating enemies
Each new level has high level enemies. There is a recommended level before entering level.
If you're not high enough level, you won't have enough attack power to defeat the enemies. Unless you purchase tons of health potions. The intensity of the workout doesn't drastically increase, but the game wants you to be a certain level before progressing. Each new level you go into have new environmental things to interact with along with unlocking new moves.
Each level can last up to 30mins
You can skip to the next section if you want. I'm just going to explain a lot of workout options. Just know that you can set up the intensity of your workout.
When you start up Adventure mode it'll ask you several survey questions and make you do sample exercises.
It'll ask you your age, sex ,weight
What exercise group you're in:
"I exercise a lot",
"I exercise some"
"I don't exercise"
"I don't exercise at all"
What type of challenge you want:
Extreme, Intense, Moderate or Casual
Jog Style: Default (regular jog) or Silent.
Silent is for those that live upstairs from someone, and/or have neighbors who don't like stepping noises or think you're doing something else with someone. In this mode, the game makes you do squats instead of jogging in place
Ask you to squeeze and pull Ring-con as hard as you can so it can set limits on your adventure
Jog Speed Limits:
Asks you to jog briskly then as hard as you can
Then asks you to do simple stretches
After that you can choose your character: male/female, skin tone, and eye color.
In game you can purchase clothes which boost stats. You can change default character at any time.
The game will adjust what you selected over time as you get more fit. Best not to cheat yourself in the beginning. It's a marathon, not a race. You're not going to speedrun through this game in a week or month.
Able to set up rep/sets playlists routine like in the Wii Fit games.
Can select to target specific body parts you want to work out and/or particular set of exercises
There are 12 mini-games to get high scores and compare it with friends/family. Also can be used as tech demo to show off the game to friends/family. Most games you just collect coins and avoid bombs (lose points if hit) within a certain time frame.

Basically a Whac-A-Mole game.

There are bombs do you have to adjust your squat intensity
4. Crate Crusher

Quick play is a good mode to play when you don't have time to invest in adventure mode level (that can last up to 30mins) while still getting your workouts in for the day
Able to use ring-con outside the game while Switch is on sleep mode.
Makes this light beep sound every time you squeeze or pull it.
Good for when you're on the couch watching Netflix. Once you boot up game, you can tranfer data to your profile to give to friends.
You can only save 500reps or squeezes at a time
Ring-Con/attached joycon controller must be within range of Switch console
Questions you may have:
1. Space needed to play game.
I'd say a 1.5 standard yoga mats side-by-side. In terms of vertical space; lift up your arms to the ceiling and stand of tippy toes. Makes sure your finger don't touch anything.
Some workout require you to be in sitting position. Best to have couch, stable chair, cube to sit on, stable yoga ball near by
2. Does the game work on the Nintendo Switch Lite?
Yes, but it's very inconvenient and has extra cost
Game is intended to play on the Nintendo Switch, and not the Nintendo Switch Lite
If you plan to play on Nintendo Switch lite; you must buy extra set of joycons since on the Lite it's fused onto the controller. Seeing Joycons are around $80 MSPR should have bought the original Switch instead.
You need a stand to prop it up. Screen is very small so hard to see text and menus. No option to dock it and put it on a standard TV.
Misc Info, Closing Thoughts
Graphics are simple. Not the best graphics on the Switch, but very pleasant to look at due to it's bright colors.
Music is very uplifting. The in-game Ring companion gives you a lot of encouraging words to keep you going like the Wii-fit trainer in the Wii fit games
Overall, fun workout with sense of progression. Most of the time, if you're really into the game, you won't even notice you're working out
Some quick background info, I'm a 29-year-old female law student. I spend approx 93% of my time studying. The other 7% is split between eating and sleeping, so there isn't a whole lot of time for me to suit up and head to a gym. Sure, there's a gym in my apartment's basement, as well as on my school's campus (also in the basement) but what would I do? hit the treadmill for 35mins? Sure, I could do that and probably to my benefit. Would be good cardio. But I don't do that either. Why? I just don't wanna. /shrug.
I played Ring Fit Adventure for about an hour yesterday (probably closer to 40 mins of total gameplay) and let me just say - I'm SORE today. My arms and shoulders FEEL like they had a good workout. And the crazy bit is... I can't wait to do it again!! Literally about to pop on my leggings right now and go for round two (though I'll probably try to focus a bit more on my core and legs) but what's nice is I *CAN* do that! The variety in this game is nuts. I never played Wii Fit (or owned a Wii) but I heard it was just "ok" and didn't *really* give you a workout. Mostly yoga poses and maybe some core work. Here, you have TONS of options to choose from, and what's great is each exercise tells you exactly what part of your body it's targeting, and gives you proper form and posture. It's up to you to do the moves correctly, but honestly, if you're trying your best to match Tipp (your posture guide - how cute!) you're probably gonna be fine.
Before you even start playing, the game guides you through a really clear set-up and calibration process. The calibration is key because it, along with inputting your weight and fitness level, will help the game adjust to your needs. But don't worry about messing up because you can recalibrate whenever you want. It's honestly pretty cool. The game starts you off with only a handful of moves, expanding as you level up (and each move has a "recharge" time so you can't just keep spamming the ones that you like/are good at). But you can access ANY of the moves by going into "quick play" or "custom" if you just want a quick workout and don't want to go into the game. Every set you start (whether it's a level or world in the game or your own selection) will tell you how long (approximately) it should take, and the calories you should expect to burn. Every time you complete a workout you can hold your thumb over the IR sensor in the right joycon and it will take a measure of your heart rate, letting you know if you're in the right zone for fitness. I checked this reading against my Apple Watch, and it seemed fairly accurate.
You don't actually even need to turn on the game to get in a bit of a workout. If your Switch is in sleep mode and you click in the joystick, the game will register every time you flex the RingCon. So you can be passively pacing around your house, squeezing the RingCon (with /really/ satisfying auditory feedback, might I add) and be racking up points in the game! I'm not sure I've ever called a game or game accessory "genius" but holy cow... it's genius.
The RingCon is STURDY and well-made, and feels GREAT in the hand. The grips are made of this beautiful sweat soaking material (so you never feel like your palms are gross and sweaty) that you can remove and wash, and the ring itself is made out of a really nice soft, velvety feeling plastic. And honestly, the resistance is perfect. Yes, I'm an out-of-shape law student, but really, do enough reps and you're going to be feeling it too. They started me at level 10 based on the calibration and information I gave them. That doesn't necessarily mean 10 reps for every move though, and I haven't quite figured out the difficulty leveling system yet (is 10 just the maximum they'll give me? still playing around with that) but I've seen video reviews online of pretty fit men playing the game and it set them at say, level 30. This isn't your in-game level, just your personal difficulty level. You'll always start the game at level 1.
Now, who is this game for? Well, as I said, I'm an almost-30-year-old-law-student, and I'm loving it. However, someone with more /refined/ or /mature/ tastes may find the game a little cringey/cutesy (I'm referring only to "Adventure" mode). I've seen reviews that say the game isn't sure if it's targeting kids or adults, but IMHO, anybody can play this game and feel like it's "for" them. Some people may find Ring's voice annoying but I find it motivating, so you'll have to decide that for yourself. What I will say is, if you already own a Switch, and game on it, you'll probably be fine with it. Adventure mode is cute and endearing, and the villain Drageaux is hilarious.
This review has gone on far too long at this point, so congratulations if you've read this far. But if you're like me, and have zero motivation to exercise, but WANT to make a lifestyle change, I feel like this might be it. Will I be able to keep this up on a regular or semi-regular basis? I don't know. I hope so! Will I get bored of it? I really hope not. But for now, all I know is I really enjoyed my time with it yesterday, and am ready to get back into it today. 5/5 Stars.
