    I'm so late....I've trying to find Ring Adventure for the past couple weeks. It's sold out everywhere. I was so focused on getting Fitness Boxing for the Mrs. Looked on eBay & Amazon price are ridiculous.
    Anybody know the reason why it's sold out? It was release Late 2019 & already sold out? Is it due to panademic? Nintendo doesn't say anything on their site if there will be more.

    i'd likely say stock shortage due to pandemic.
    we saw an influx of Switch sales and I'm willing to bet those whose last console was a Wii took a look at Ring Adventure and thought, ok I'm on board.

    Stock was already crazy low to begin with because Nintendo just likes watching people fight on eBay for their stuff I guess. (amiibo too lol). Then when the pandemic hit, everything went even crazier, because there was a big demand for it with everyone stuck inside. That’s when the scalping began.

    I know Europe is supposed to be getting more stock, iirc? But for now, I dunno, you’re likely going to have to shell out for it. Especially the ring.

    It trickles into stock here (UK) at various shops and I think we had a big stock update last month, when I got mine from Amazon, loads of retailers here got stock at the same time.

    I've seen a lot of people on reddit buying from https://www.fnac.com/, as they ship to the US and seem to get a decent amount of stock every so often.

    Maybe NOA just sucks.

    Hopefully Ring should be stock by Christmas or so.
    Is there a digital version? Just curious

    There is a digital version, but the game cannot be played without the ring con, which can be purchased separately.

    Thanks. I'll probably wait it out & see if there will be in stock in the near future.

    Christmas rush + pandemic horde + lockdown boredom + it's actually a fun game = sold out everywhere.

    It's worth keeping an eye on a few stock alert sites - that was how I managed to get one.

    I watched stockinformer and nowinstock like a hawk, and got one through stockinformer, but I don't know if these sites work for US stores.

    Edit: apparently they track US stores too!

    https://www.stockinformer.com/ and https://www.nowinstock.net/

    I was wondering about the digital-only too, as I've seen the Ring and Strap controller, ready for joy-con insertion (good knock off) in several places much like we did for all the Wii crap: Wii Tennis rackets etc...

    So if digital DL were available, who needs NoA Bait & Wait.

    Thanks. Doubt there will be in stock any time soon & Amazon/eBay are out of the question since they're from 3rd party sellers.
    What store did you obtain yours from?

    Good old Aamzon actually! But you have to be quick - it sold out pretty much straight after my order.

    Yep bought it at retail price! I never give money to the scalpers. Just be patient and keep checking various sites.

    How long it took you to get your hands on one?

    Around 2-3 weeks I think. I saved a few sites into a bookmark folder and opened all links every now and then. Stock seemed to be distributed in batches so if one store suddenly had it in stock, a few other stores might have stock too - this isn't guaranteed, of course. Just have to keep checking!

    Even before the pandemic I don't recall seeing many in stores.
