Ring-Con

Quarantine has been providing gamers with plenty of free time. And while having free reign to play is fun, we must remember to stay healthy and fit. But is there a way to marry exercise and gaming together? With Ring Fit Adventure‘s Ring-Con, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and some modding expertise, the answer is “yes.”

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is meant to be experienced with a circle

YouTuber Super Louis 64 is a Ring-Con modder who enjoys playing video games with the device. He’s tackled Dark Souls III using the peripheral but what about a title that’s even harder than that, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe?

As Louis demonstrates in the video, running in place makes your kart move. Squeezing the Ring-Con uses items. You can steer using the gyroscopic sensors or Joy-Con.

Racing looks quite demanding using a fitness controller. Poor Louis ends up sweating so profusely, he can’t see the road due to the water in his eyes. I don’t know if I’d be down with such a rigorous regimen. When it all comes down to it, you can never outrace or outrun a blue shell.

Enthusiasts, do you think Ring-Con mods are cool? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below!
