Immortals Fenyx Rising | $28
Just released in December, Ubisoft’s Immortals Fenyx Rising is an open-world adventure inspired by Greek mythology as much as it is Nintendo’s Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It hails from the developers of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, but is tighter in focus, cartoonish in style, and pretty funny to boot. It’s more than half off at Amazon.
Ring Fit Adventure | $70
Nintendo’s Ring Fit Adventure was damn near impossible to find during the first few months of the pandemic, but now Amazon has it in stock for $10 off. Ring Fit Adventure is a fitness-centric role-playing adventure that finds you slotting one Joy-Con controller into the included ring peripheral and attaching the other to your leg, using motion controls to challenge you while providing a surprisingly serious workout.
