Someone has managed to get the Ring Fit Adventure controller working on Overwatch. Call it the effects of being indoors for over a year, but it looks equally impressive and exhausting.
Controller modder Super Louis 64 explains that he set it up to run forward in the game by jogging on the spot, aiming and shooting by using the Joy-Con on the Ring-Con, and using his ultimate by squatting. If you’re wondering if this is a good workout, it looks like the answer is yes. The modder compares one shot of him before the stream and to another when he’s one hour in, and the difference is notable – the poor lad.
As you can imagine, there’s plenty of negatives to playing Overwatch this way. Louis says that he can’t strafe or walk backwards, so duelling is a tad tough – sorry, McCree mains. Also, running back to your team from spawn? Yeah, it gets exhausting real quick, but playing as Lucio seems to help. Despite the trying conditions, Louis says he was able to bag a few wins while getting a health workout. Excellent.
