Best gaming deals: Ring Fit Adventure for Nintendo Switch, Batman Blu-rays

Ring Fit Adventure, Nintendo’s Switch-based fitness game, is both a fun RPG and a pretty challenging workout. And as the COVID-19 pandemic shut down gyms across the country, Ring Fit Adventure became even more enticing as an at-home workout option. It can still be difficult to find in stock, but right now Amazon is offering a $10 discount on the game. As of this writing, the Amazon page for Ring Fit Adventure indicated that orders would be ready to ship on Oct. 6.

Switch owners can also save on some carrying cases at Best Buy this week. Nintendo’s official case for the Switch Lite is $5 off, bringing it down to $14.99, and a licensed bundle of accessories — including a Nintendo Switch case — is on sale for $26.99 (usually $39.99). Fans of Animal Crossing: New Horizons can also save on a water bottle featuring icons from the beloved franchise.

Amazon is also discounting the Batman 80th Anniversary Collection on Blu-ray. The collection of 18 animated Batman films typically retails for around $60, but recently dropped down by about $10.

Finally, Amazon is offering a new $10 discount on the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2. The updated model of Microsoft’s high-end gamepad has only ever been on sale at Amazon once before, and that was only for Prime members. $10 isn’t a huge discount when we’re talking about a $180 controller, but it’s the first deal of any kind we’ve seen on this controller. (And yes, it will be compatible with Xbox Series X.)
