Searching for where to buy Ring Fit Adventure can be frustrating. The popular Nintendo Switch fitness game has seen demand surge over the past few months, a demand that was already high before the global pandemic. With many of us stuck indoors and looking for new ways to get our exercise in, Ring Fit Adventure stock is rarely stable at the moment.
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.
We have, however, seen stock flashing in and out over the past few weeks, so if you spot a copy sitting on a digital shelf you'll need to act fast to claim it. Plus, with demand rising beyond supply, scalpers are taking more than enough of your cash through inflated prices on second hand markets. We're here to steer you clear of those resellers, and show you where to buy Ring Fit Adventure for a reasonable price.
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.
