In any other year, Ring Fit Adventure might have been a bit of a slow sleeper hit, because folks who were keen on fitness were more than likely hitting the gym or engaging in social exercise groups at the local swimming pool.
Then comes COVID-19, and we’re increasingly being restricted indoors and engaging in smart social distancing, which doesn’t lend itself to sweating out in public. That made Ring Fit Adventure a huge hit last year. In an increasingly isolated world, it’s a great and surprisingly fun way to get your sweat on. That is, if you could find a copy of it last year.
Ring Fit Adventure was hard to find but hot commodity in Australia, with retailers like EB Games even going as far to limit the amount of copies they’d sell per customer.
However, good news, because it appears that Amazon Australia has stock of Ring Fit Adventure ready to fly off its warehouse shelves and into your restricted exercise space right now. You can also pick it up for $98, saving yourself a nice $26.95 off the RRP.

Like Wii Fit before it, Ring Fit Adventure can be a little tricky to keep the pace with over time, but if you’re currently isolating, or not feeling that comfortable with visiting the gym, there’s plenty of time for you to work your way to superior fitness.
Heck, we’ve seen folks use Ring Fit Adventure to give their days a sense of normality during a very unusual year so there’s even scope for it to be good for your mental as well as physical health.
If you’ve already got Ring Fit Adventure locked into your Switch and depending on how frequently you use it, it’s not a bad idea to pick up an extra controller so you don’t have to be constantly popping your Joy-Cons in and out of the ring. A controller can also help you dodge the whole Joy-Con drift issue.
