During the investors briefing for the 9 months ending December 31, 2019, Nintendo briefly commented on the state of Ring Fit Adventure worldwide.
In 2019, Nintendo sold over 1.7 million units of Ring Fit Adventure in Japan, North America, and Europe. Shortages in Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, and Hong Kong continue to persist till this day, despite the numerous restocks in the region. Nintendo President Shuntaro Furukawa apologized for the inconvenience:
Sales of Ring Fit Adventure have continued to grow since its release in October. Sales took off initially in East Asia such as in Japan and South Korea, followed by gathering momentum in the European market after Black Friday. No detailed sell-through information is available for the Asian region, so totals include only the major Japanese/North American/European regions. Currently, cumulative sell-through has exceeded 1.7 million units.However, despite continuous shipments, this product is selling out rapidly and shortages continue in East Asia, including Japan. Many consumers are still waiting, and I would like to apologize again for this inconvenience.
