Laura spreads the word

For a couple of weeks now, Nintendo has been releasing Ring Fit Adventure videos featuring actress/model/presenter Laura Whitmore. Today Nintendo gives us an official introduction to Laura, as well as a reveal of her Ring Fit Adventure ambassador status.

Ring Fit Adventure is an action adventure game that makes home workouts fun on Nintendo Switch!

Laura is a big fan of Ring Fit Adventure and said:

“I love the fact that I can roll out of bed in the morning and start my Ring Fit Adventure home workout straight away. I can customise a variety of full-body work outs which fit into my hectic schedule. The game helps keep me fit and motivated – and all from the comfort of my living room."

The game allows you to customise your own fitness routines tailored to your personal fitness goals and skill levels. Check your estimated pulse rate with the built-in IR Motion Sensor and stay fit and motivated from your own home when it suits you.

TV presenter Laura Whitmore is the ambassador for Ring Fit Adventure and the star of Nintendo UK’s TV ad campaign, which is currently airing across the UK. It shows Laura’s morning fitness routine with Ring Fit Adventure - striking yoga poses, before going into a full body workout, all before breakfast.

Want to get a full body workout from the comfort of your own home too? Ring Fit Adventure is available now from the Nintendo Official UK Store. Check out the full range of available bundles here.

French Ring Fit Adventure commercial features Andrea Decaudin and Denis Brogniart

Gotta keep singing the praises!

A new commercial for Ring Fit Adventure has released in France, and it features both Andrea Decaudin and Denis Brogniart. Brogniart is a former sports journalist and current TV host, and Andrea Decaudin is an actor. Two faces that French audiences should certainly recognize.

Ring Fit Adventure surpasses The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild's physical Switch sales in Japan

Time for a crossover!

While The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild broke franchise sales figures all over the world, including Japan, the series still isn't that popular in its nation of origin. That's why today's sales data update shouldn't be too surprising, but it's still impressive.

The latest week of sales data for Japan shows that Ring Fit Adventure has managed to sell 1,668,843 units. This means it has surpassed total physical sales of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on Switch, which sits at 1,662,966. Now obviously Breath of the Wild has sold a decent amount of digital sales, which would bump that figure up. You could even toss in sales of the Wii U version of the game as well if you want. All that said, Ring Fit Adventure's achievement, especially in the face of stock shortages, shows the long tail and serious success of the game.
