Ring Fit Adventure is a new fitness game for the Nintendo Switch.  It is an platform-adventure RPG game where you play as a hero dressed as a gym rat who is partnered up with a sentient ring named Ring.  You go through different levels, defeating various bosses along the way.  The main objective is to defeat a muscular purple dragon in a leotard.

You control your character by using the ring and leg strap for the game.  Throughout each level, you conduct different physical exercises to fight off various enemies.  Moves such as squats or yoga poses are used to attack foes during each fight.

Not only are you getting fit from the different poses, but you level up as you progress through the game as well.  Each new level will feature tougher enemies each time.  As you level up throughout, the moves will even become much harder too.
