The Nintendo Switch has been good for many in various ways, not the least of which is the wide variety of games that have been put upon the console. But one of the biggest surprises in terms of sales results was that of Ring Fit Adventure. Which went from a “niche exercise title” for some Switch users, to a best-seller in every way. Its boom during the pandemic has led many to wonder…will Nintendo build upon it?
During a Q&A session, Nintendo President Shuntaro Furukawa answered just that:
Since Ring Fit Adventure was released in October 2019, strong demand has continued both in Japan and overseas. It sold 7.38 million units globally during the fiscal year ended March 2021, and cumulative sales have exceeded 10 million units. This title is popular also in the Asia region including Korea, Taiwan, and Hong Kong, even though Nintendo’s main business regions are Japan, the U.S., and Europe. With regard to future developments, I cannot disclose specific plans, but we would like to take various initiatives so many people continue to play this title.
This might mean a sequel, though obviously, that is unconfirmed. But hope is out there for those who love to use it to exercise while having fun.
