Ring Fit Adventure is one of the games that are causing the most demand during the coronavirus crisis (COVID-19) mainly due to the fact that it allows users to play while exercising. However, Nintendo has been unable to keep up with the lawsuit , which has resulted in shortages. It is in Japan where the problem is greatest and as evidence is a recent case in which thousands of consumers had to participate in a raffle in order to buy it.
The great popularity of Ring Fit Adventure , together with the distribution limitations of the Nintendo Switch , have led to incredible situations such as that of the Japanese store Yamada Denki, which, given the small stocks of Nintendo Switch and Ring Fit Adventure , organized a raffle for 130 Nintendo Switch and 900 Ring Fit Adventure so lucky winners had a chance to buy them, according to information from Daniel Ahmad , analyst at Nikko Partners.
As you can see, there would be a maximum of 1030 winners. This caught the attention of Japanese consumers, who did not hesitate to participate, and such was the response that in the end there were more than 200,000 entries and heavy traffic to the online site that caused the server to crash.
WHEN WILL SHORTAGE PROBLEMS BE SOLVED?
Being a game in physical format, Ring Fit Adventure cannot be obtained in the Nintendo eShop, but consumers have no choice but to order their unit in online stores or buy it in conventional stores. The problem is that in neither case is there enough inventory to meet the demand, which has caused many users to dispute a unit.
So far it is not known when the situation will return to normal in Japan, but apparently it will not be in the near future, as demand is still very high and Nintendo Switch distribution problems continue. In fact, this week in Japan the sale of consoles to consumers with preorders was limited .
