Nintendo’s Ring Fit Tops Amazon’s Best-Sellers Chart

Amazon was already established as the go-to online store for all your needs before the dark days of the pandemic. Its service became even more in-demand when high street stores closed down during lockdown, and Amazon’s best-sellers list proves that getting fit in a fun way is still a good source of entertainment to pass the time.

Nintendo’s Ring Fit Adventure dominates Amazon’s best-sellers list of 2021 in video games (so far) – currently doing a competitive dance with Super Mario 3D World with Bowser’s Fury. While the exercise-based game currently fluctuates between the 10th and 11th spot, its entry into the top ten is only blocked by a sea of Nintendo eShop, PlayStation Store, Roblox, and Xbox Live Gold gift cards – a wall of card cash only cracked by an entry from a tempered glass screen protector for the Nintendo Switch.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons was the life-sim of 2020 and a safe haven for isolation-weary folk during the brunt of lockdown. Its place in Amazon’s customer ranking is currently #34, giving way to other Nintendo handheld favorites, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario 3D All-Stars. Other products in the top 20 include a high-performance gaming mouse from Logitech, various gaming headsets, and a Nintendo Switch Pro Controller. Game-wise, Nintendo dominates the chart, with Spider-Man: Miles Morales being the first to break the Japanese titan’s streak at #45.

Ring Fit Adventure securing and maintaining such a high place in the chart is a testament to its unique fitness approach – which has always been Nintendo’s goal. Marketed as an unofficial successor to Wii Sports, Ring Fit offers a simple, entertaining, and encouraging approach to staying active – without being patronizing. Its progress tracker and healthy catalogue of mini games may be more suited to calorie-focused individuals, however its Adventure Mode presents a charming heroes story to squat and jog through the pastel flora.

Ring Fit Adventure’s necessary piece of equipment, the Ring-Con, was also used by a Nintendo fan to take working out with game accessories to a whole new level. Mike Choi used both Nintendo Labo builds and the Ring-Con to make a hybrid exercise bike. The bike was then used to play Mario Kart (of course), which continued to astound modders and fitness enthusiasts.
