In "Ring Fit", you play a jogger who discovers a magical ring and squeezes it, accidentally releasing a monstrous dragon that's very in shape.

Now that Nintendo has revealed its latest game Ring Fit Adventure to the world, finer details about how it will be distributed are beginning to emerge.

Express Online will bring you more from Ring Fit Adventure in the run up to its October 18 release date on Nintendo Switch. Nintendo said that the game "is meant to fit into busy lifestyles" with short sessions to be played over several months but that playtime will differ for individuals.

Most famously, it launched the Wii Fit at the start of the global economic downturn more than a decade ago. You have to move your character manually by jogging or walking on the spot, while the Ring-Con is used to interact with objects in the world.

Based on Express Online's hands and legs-on experience with the game, Ring Fit Adventure has the feel of a fully-fledged albeit casual role-playing game, complete with sublime visuals, turn-based battles, multiple worlds and a levelling up system. For instance, one attack you can carry out is a simple squat, while others involve yoga poses.

Do you plan to get into shape when Ring Fit Adventure launches on the Switch? The game and accessories cost a combined $79.99.

The new Ring-Con and Leg Strap accessories that are included in the package will track the player's movements, placing the actions in-game.

As well as recognizable franchises such as the "Super Mario" and "Legend of Zelda" games, Nintendo is well known for its novel approach to controller design.
