If you're looking for where to buy Ring Fit Adventure, you might have been looking for a while. Since the pandemic started, Nintendo's fitness adventure has been flying off the shelves and has been slow to return. We're not quite out of the woods yet, there's still no stock available in the US at the time of writing, but we are starting to see Ring Fit Adventure in stock more and more - albeit for a flash until that stock is picked off the shelves. Keep checking back, though, because we're bringing you all the latest updates right here.
UK Stock Update - 27/07: AO currently has Ring Fit Adventure in stock for £70
We're rounding up the latest Ring Fit Adventure stock to hit the shelves in our price comparison charts below, but be wary that with such a volatile stock situation, some of these products on show may still be unavailable.
These stock shortages are also down to the fact that Ring Fit Adventure requires peripheral hardware to work. Included in the game's $79 / £64.99 / AU$125 price is a modified, Joy-Con holding pilates ring as well as a leg strap. That means you can't simply download the software from the Nintendo Switch eShop and be on your way, compounding the current inventory difficulties.
Stock is in no way stable at the moment, so we're showing you the best places to check first when you're looking for where to buy Ring Fit Adventure. These stores have recently offered Ring Fit Adventure stock, so it's likely they'll have it back on the shelves in the future. We're including retailers from the US and UK here, and keeping a constant eye on inventory using our own price checking software.

What is Ring Fit Adventure and why is it selling out?
Ring Fit Adventure is a fitness game from Nintendo for the Switch - although it is marketed as a game first and exercise second.
The action-RPG game sees you real-life squatting, crunching and downward-dogging your way to success, as you set out on a quest to defeat a hench, bodybuilding dragon called Dragaux. And that's just the story mode, there are also plenty of mini-games and individual workouts to focus on specific parts of your body.
The game comes with a Ring Fit (imagine a pilates ring) that lets you slide one Joy-Con controller into the ring and another into a strap that you fasten to your leg. This allows the game to track how hard you're working - and you'll work hard.
Ring Fit Adventure is great fun for the whole family, but most importantly helps you get your daily dose of exercise. It's likely that the game is like gold-dust to find due to the number of people stuck at home due to the Covid-19 pandemic, who want to make their workouts a bit more exciting.
TechRadar has contacted Nintendo for comment on when Ring Fit Adventure stock will return. We will update you with the official response as soon as we get it.
