Tencent has announced that a Ring Fit Adventure Direct for Chinese Switch fans will be held tomorrow. Tencent works in partnership with Nintendo to deliver products to the region. As per Chinese Nintendo and Daniel Ahmad translation, the event will take place on Aug. 19 at 5 a.m. PT / 8 a.m. ET.

The Ring Fit Adventure Direct is set to reveal the release date for the game in China. It will also cover where the game can be purchased. Since there are only a limited number of Switch games available in China, some users resort to retailers who import games from the West for new releases.

In February we reported that Chinese resellers were buying up international copies of Ring Fit Adventure to sell in China during COVID-19 lockdown because it was a good way to stay healthy and the game had gone viral on Chinese social media. Some copies were selling for over $250 because demand was so high.

Back in March there were fewer games on the Chinese Nintendo eShop than you could count on one hand. While it’s true that Switch games aren’t region-locked in their physical form, they’re sometimes difficult to get hold of over there. For example, even Animal Crossing: New Horizons is currently banned in China.
