Ring Fit Adventure now has speedrunners and it takes some serious stamina to take part in this category. Speedrunners are spending close to 24 hours working out, which sounds like a one-way ticket to problems or some new weird health craze.
Japanese speedrunner Sakinyan has the record for playing through the campaign and beating the final boss in a single session, exercising for some 18-hours. At the end of this, Sakinyan stopped the timer, wiped some sweat from her face and started to do some stretches before hopping on her phone.
Sakinyan played on the easiest difficulty, but doing resistance exercise and running on the spot for 18 hours is still nothing to sniff at. I’m not sure I could make 8 hours in a row… or even one, to be honest.
Adam “Ventifer” England says the idea started as a joke and now he holds the second-fastest record, taking 19 hours 30 minutes to exercise through the campaign.
This makes my afternoon walk seem like an absolute joke.
