Ring Fit Adventure is a hit, and Nintendo is keen on keeping it rolling.
Nintendo’s hit fitness game Ring Fit Adventure might be getting new content at some point according to a recent shareholder Q&A [PDF], where the company noted the game's strong sales.
In response to a question on whether Nintendo will be making a sequel to the wildly popular Switch fitness game, Shuntaro Furukawa, representative director and president at Nintendo, said that the company has no new developments to announce, but that “we would like to take various initiatives so many people continue to play this title.”
While far from a solid confirmation, it certainly sounds like Nintendo has more Ring Fit in store for players.
And it’s small wonder why. In the same shareholder Q&A, Furukawa confirmed that it’s sold 7.38 million globally during the fiscal year that ended March 2021, and 10 million sales overall. It was so popular in 2020 that demand far outstripped the available supply. Ring Fit Adventure proved it has a long tail at retail, too, so it makes sense that Nintendo would want to take full advantage of that.
Ring Fit Adventure is a hybrid fitness game/RPG which we called “one of the most pleasant surprises of the year” in our review. Audiences rewarded the game with sales that recently surpassed The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild at retail in Japan.
