Forums - Sales Discussion - Ring Fit Adventure at No.2 following stock boost l UK Charts Week ending June 6th

Tagged games:

FIFA 20 is back at the top of the UK boxed game charts.

EA's football game has been a mainstay in the Top Five over the past three months and it has become a home for fans of the sport since the real world leagues were put on hiatus in March. It surged in sales by 55% week-on-week thanks to a price drop to under £25.

The biggest riser of the week, however, is Nintendo's Ring Fit Adventure at No.2. The fitness game received a big stock boost this week and was backed by a TV marketing campaign, and as a result sales surged by 1160% week-on-week.

Last week's No.1 Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition on Switch drops all the way down to No.28 after an 87% fall in sales.

The big new release of the week was also a Nintendo Switch game. 51 Worldwide Games debuts at No.6 and was also backed by a TV advertising campaign. The casual nature of this title means that it's likely to be a long-term seller, as opposed to the big opening week you would see from games aimed at hardcore audiences.

Sticking with Switch, Private Division's The Outer Worlds re-enters the charts at No.30 following the launch of the Nintendo Switch version of the game. The RPG was initially released late last year on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Sony's Day of Play sale continues and titles such as The Last of Us Remastered (No.8) and Marvels Spider-Man (No.10) saw another uptick in sales week-on-week of over 30% each.

All data is just for physical game sales.

Here is the GfK Top 40 for the week ending June 6th

It looks like the Switch and Ring Fit Adventure are once again out of stock in the UK.



I’ve been looking for this for weeks in the US but refuse to pay scalper prices. It’s supposed to be restocked in the US this week.

Same. 

I didn't realize a restock was coming! I'll have to be extra diligent.



Around the Network

Ring Fit Adventure has the clear potential to outsell Wii Fit - if Nintendo can finally make enough of them, as they still sell out as quick as they come in!



RFA is surely one of the biggest surprise hits in the recent years. Now Nintendo give us a sequel to Wii Sports/resorts for the Switch.



Pocky Lover Boy! 

Havent used mine in a while.. should start with it again, want to try out the new update with the songs.
The first few times I used it I could barely walk 1-2 days later :)



If it isn't turnbased it isn't worth playing   (mostly)

And shepherds we shall be,

For Thee, my Lord, for Thee. Power hath descended forth from Thy hand, That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy command. So we shall flow a river forth to Thee And teeming with souls shall it ever be. In Nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritūs Sancti. -----The Boondock Saints

At this point, RFA is going to sell Switches like it's a new game during the holidays if Nintendo can put out enough stock.



RFA definitely has impressive sales.  I don't doubt it will have legs either.  However, Nintendo would be wise to produce as many units as possible right now.  All games are getting a boost, but RFA might be getting a super-sized boost due to many gyms being closed.  Now is the time to ship these games out.
