Nintendo Apologise For Ring Fit Adventure Shortages
Nintendo have issued an apology for shortages of Ring Fit Adventure in the domestic Japanese market. Nintendo say they are continuing to ship every week, and will increase the number of shipments toward the end of the year. Nintendo also advise to check with your local retailer whether they may be able to make reservations for the game.
Nintendo have updated Ring Fit Adventure to Version 1.1.3 which fixed a bug that displayed the Total Time Exercising incorrectly in Everyone’s Records beyond a certain amount and several issues have been addressed to improve the game play experience.
Ring Fit Adventure will be playable on the large monitor pictured above at Nintendo TOKYO, which opens this Friday in Shibuya PARCO.

PLiCy have just released a browser game called Ring Fat Adventure where the aim of the game is to eat as many donuts as possible and get fat! PLiCy have currently published four titles on the Switch eShop although it’s unlikely Ring Fat Adventure will be the fifth.
After a relative strong start in Japan, selling 183,685 units in its opening three weeks, several stores had reported shortages of Ring Fit Adventure including online retailer Amazon. It is however now back in stock at Amazon with impressive numbers according to retailer GEO who have the game as third (behind only Death Stranding and Luigi’s Mansion 3) for past week’s sales across their 1,200 stores.
Nintendo have said that many of the consumers who purchased Ring Fit Adventure on day one in Japan, the US, and Europe are between 20 and 30 years old, and a lot of them are women. Going forward into the holiday season and continuing into next year, Nintendo want to keep expanding the sales of the game so that it can be enjoyed by players across the world, regardless of age or gender.
