And ring fit. I feel like there were some people that wrote it off as an extension of the Wii era. But it's actually an interesting game as well as a fitness program.

I think sakes would be higher still if there weren’t stock issues - finally found it online this week after months of looking and of course, I bought it as soon as I saw it was available!

That's true. I don't think even Nintendo expected as much popularity.

Hope you like it. But don't overdo it.
