Could find a couple here in Luxembourg, but the stocks are visibly smaller than they were before.

Also, a console not being in stock is a real rarity here. The Wii was in stock from March 2007 on and never went out of stock again until stores retired it for the Wii U. The Switch on the other hand was out of stock once after the initial launch period during Smash launch.

You can also still find PS4 and XBO here btw, though the latter seems to be getting really low on stock in some stores.

There was a holiday the previous week in Japan where Nintendo was able to ship some extra consoles. Right now Switch sales mainly dependent on how many Nintendo can ship.
