Experience a New Type of Adventure Game in Ring Fit Adventure, Now Available on Nintendo Switch

It’s time to embark on a wondrous adventure set in an expansive world filled with daring challenges, powerful enemies and a bodybuilding dragon with an ego to match his oversized muscles. But the twist in this adventure is that you will move through the game world and defeat enemies with attacks based on various real-world exercises using the two included accessories that respond to real-life movement. Starting today, the new Ring Fit Adventure game for the Nintendo Switch system is now available in stores. The two new accessories – Ring-Con and Leg Strap – work with the Joy-Con controllers and allow the game to turn your movements and exercise in the real world, like jogging in place, squats and overhead shoulder presses, into actions in the game.

Ring Fit Adventure is a new way to experience adventure gaming that lets various types of players explore a huge world and battle enemies using real-life movements and exercise,” said Nick Chavez, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “With Ring Fit Adventure, you can tailor exercise to your skill level, and as your skill level grows so too will your progress in this deep adventure game.”

In the game’s main Adventure mode, you’ll journey through numerous colorful worlds, with your ultimate goal to defeat the evil bodybuilding dragon, Dragaux. As you move through each level, you’ll defeat enemies with exercise using your arms, legs and core to earn experience points and collect ingredients to craft in-game smoothies that support your journey. Between battles, you might even encounter some unusual methods of transportation, such as squat-powered launch pads, ab twist-fueled paddleboards and other ways to get around using the power of your real-life exercise moves.

Outside of the main adventure, Quick Play mode is a great way to enjoy Ring Fit Adventure in shorter bursts, allowing you to jump in and out of play. This lets you enjoy the game in different ways, like taking turns with friends and family in various mini-games. Mini-games cover a wide range of activities, from breaking boxes with gusts of air triggered by squeezing the Ring-Con accessory to shaping pottery by performing squats. The game also features online leaderboards* so you can compare your high scores with friends on your Nintendo Switch friends list!

Other modes, like Simple and Sets, offer additional ways to work out. “Simple” lets you choose exercises you want to work on and perform them individually. High scores are recorded so you can keep track of your personal bests. “Sets” provides linked sequences of different exercises designed around a theme or a particular body part. This mode lets you target a muscle group you want to focus on, like legs, shoulders, lower body or core.

Before you start a session of Ring Fit Adventure, you’ll simply insert the left Joy-Con into the Leg Strap accessory and then attach it to your upper-left leg. The Ring-Con accessory, which holds the right Joy-Con, is held in both hands. The Ring-Con accessory is a flexible electronic device that provides resistance and uses the Joy-Con to respond to your movements. Ring Fit Adventure can be adjusted to your level of skill, so even if you don’t have experience with fitness, you can change the exercise intensity at any time to suit your ability. This will let you continue playing every day at an activity level that’s comfortable for you.

The fun nature of Ring Fit Adventure will motivate you to regularly get exercise as you continue your journey and level up your character in the game. And with the power of Nintendo Switch, the game can be taken anywhere, letting you work up a sweat at your own convenience.

Using the Multitask mode, you can use the Ring-Con accessory with an attached Joy-Con controller on its own, without the Nintendo Switch system. While you’re sitting at work or watching TV, you can press and pull the Ring-Con accessory to gain reps. Later, you can sync the Ring-Con accessory with your Ring Fit Adventure game to convert the stored reps into bonuses, such as experience and in-game items for your character.

The game even includes a “Silent” mode for people who live in an upstairs apartment or don’t want to make a lot of noise. By activating this mode, jogging-style exercises are swapped out for ones that are a little quieter, allowing you to keep your legs active without a heavy impact on the floor.

Ring Fit Adventure is now available in stores at a suggested retail price of $79.99. It includes the game card, Ring-Con and Leg Strap accessories. For more information about the game, visit https://ringfitadventure.nintendo.com/.

Stardew Valley no longer published by Chucklefish

Eric Barone (aka Concerned Ape) posted a clarification on the relationship between Chucklefish and Stardew Valley back in September. This happened amid allegations that Chucklefish was engaging in abusive labor practices.

“Throughout the 4.5 years of development, I was the only person to work on Stardew Valley. Neither Chucklefish nor any contributors working with Chucklefish were involved in creating the game, in any capacity.”

“For the multiplayer update, which came out on PC 2.5 years after the game first launched, a Chucklefish employee did create the multiplayer net-code, but that was the only case where Chucklefish was directly involved in development of the game.”

“Beyond that, Chucklefish has served only as publisher, which means that they handled the business and marketing side of things, as well as contracting the localizations, console & mobile ports to 3rd-party companies. Since December of last year, I’ve moved to self-publishing on PC, Mac, Linux, PS4, Xbox, and PSVita… Chucklefish is no longer publishing the game on those platforms.”

– Eric Barone (Concerned Ape)

As part of that announcement, he also said that Chucklefish would no longer be publishing the game on Nintendo Switch. It is now official, when you boot up Stardew Vally on your Switch you no longer see the Chucklefish Logo.

“Just a heads up everyone, starting today I’ll begin self-publishing Stardew Valley on the Nintendo Switch. That means I will now have full responsibility for any and all matters concerning Stardew Valley on the Switch, so if you have any comments or inquiries about the Switch version please send them directly to me.”

– Eric Barone (Concerned Ape)

As of this writing when you boot the game, it still says published by Chucklefish and developed by Concerned Ape.

Upcoming Monster Hunter World: Iceborne Beta for PlayStation®4 and Xbox One Offers Four Quests, Including the Elder Dragon Velkhana

Ahead of the Monster Hunter World: Iceborne massive expansion’s global console release on September 6, Capcom today confirmed details about upcoming beta sessions, which offer four quest options for players to try at home. The Monster Hunter World: Iceborne PlayStation®4 beta will be available for all PS4™ users from 12:01am PDT on Friday, August 30 through 11:59pm PDT on Sunday, September 1. Following that, a beta for Xbox One will be available from 12:01am PDT on Monday, September 2 through 11:59pm PDT on Wednesday, September 4. Preload options will be available starting August 28 before each beta period begins. The Monster Hunter: World base game is not required to participate in the Iceborne beta sessions.

These pre-launch beta sessions for Monster Hunter World: Iceborne are cooler than ever with the addition of a frosty new challenge. Alongside the previously available Great Jagras (Beginner), Banbaro (Intermediate) and Tigrex (Expert) quests, players will be able to battle against the game’s mythical flagship monster Velkhana for the first time. Watch out though, this Elder Dragon’s icy breath is dangerous and offers a bone-chilling fight for even the fiercest of hunters.

Similar to previous beta sessions, hunters can test out all 14 weapon types in any of the four quests and the training area. The weapons include the new Iceborne features, plus the new Slinger tool options such as the Clutch Claw grapple mechanic.

Upon completing each quest for the first time, hunters can earn a total of four special commendation packs containing helpful consumable items that will be available to use in the full version of the Iceborne expansion when it releases. So, pack those Hot Drinks and join a hunting party to clear these quests!

Happy hunting!
Capcom PR Team
