Forums - Sales Discussion - Japan sales : Wii Fit versus Ring Fit (launch aligned)

The audience for Wii Fit moved on long ago, but it's still impressive that Ring Fit is still selling. I wonder if it'll ever reach the million.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Huh? RFA crossed 600k this past week and it's bound to sell 20k+ per week for most of 2020. 1m lifetime is absolutely guaranteed and even 2m isn't much of a stretch.

Really? I didn't know that, that's great news!

On the 16th week, the Ring Fit fails his occasion to make a first come back by not so much. It seems the shortages in Asia are not yet solved at all, judging by the news.
Wii Fit : 37.859
Ring Fit : 30.111

First post updated.
Ring Fit has started to counter attack!
In 6 weeks from this point, the weekly sales of the Wii Fit will dramatically collapse.

At some points in the data, a week is missing (Japan holidays), for these exceptions I have decided to divide by 2 the value and spread the quantity on the 2 weeks concerned.

The difference is starting to stabilize with Ring Fit even slowly gaining ground.
Realistically, I don't think this is a fight it can win, but even just maintaining the current ~1,3 mil difference would put it at 2,2 mil+ lifetime, which would be incredible for a game that "only" debuted at 70k.

I think I have exagerated...It is not a "collapse" in 6 weeks...But I think the Ring Fit has decent chances to retake a lot of ground, if we see soon a DLC for example, which sounds to me like an easy and obvious plan for Nintendo.

The possibilities for new softwares are huge with the device.
