With many of us staying indoors thanks to the winter months and due to tiered lockdown, many are trying to pursue past times that offer a perfect combination of gaming and fitness.

If that's something you're interested in, then Nintendo's got it figured it out with the Ring Fit Adventure, which is quickly becoming popular among gamers with families or housemates.

You might have already known this and had been planning to pick one up. During lockdown, it was pretty difficult to order one – we don't think Nintendo envisaged most of the world staying indoors for a few weeks when it was manufactured.

However, stock levels and delivery availability have both improved since earlier in the year – although if you're looking for a guaranteed Christmas delivery, we'd encourage you to carefully check individual retailers' listings for their stock levels and dispatch times in your local area.

The official Nintendo Store has the Ring Fit Adventure in stock for £69.99 at the moment. It's also running an on-site offer where you can save 25% on memory cards (always handy) when buying any Switch game using a special code at checkout.

It also has a variety of console and Ring Fit Adventure bundles, starting at £329.99.

Meanwhile, Argos lists Ring Fit Adventure for a price of £69.99 right now – tap in your postcode to see if it's available in your area, and if so, what the delivery lead time will be.

Smyths Toys' website also offers a similar function for its click and collect service, and delivery is also available for the Ring Fit Adventure. It's price-matching the other retailers at £69.99.

Meanwhile, GAME has a Nintendo Switch and Ring Fit Adventure console bundle for £349.99.

If you're curious about what the Ring Fit Adventure is, it basically combines light exercise and gaming into a fun format that Nintendo has been successfully pushing for years.

To be honest, it does lean more heavily on the game aspect than the working out bit, but hey, at least you're up and moving (and hopefully having fun doing so).

Instead of using the regular Joy-Con controller options, you'll be slipping them into a resistance band, which can be used to control your in-game character.

Jogging on the spot, squeezing, squatting and pressing your way through the levels will ultimately lead you to a pretty stacked dragon called Dragaux, who will mock you for your tiny muscles unless you defeat him.

Sure, it's gimmicky, but it's great entertainment. So, for now, good luck hunting for the Nintendo Ring Fit Adventure...
