Seriously, don't risk getting from Japan lah. The Switch thread now so many ppl reported problems (joy con desync, battery depletes, dead pixels, gap between front bezel and back, gets too hot like 70 degrees, wifi dead after firmware update...). Many sent to Maxsoft already. I think well over 20 ppl (or posts) reporting problems there. Even those fanboys who used to say "where got de-sync pblm, i never encounter, stop whining", as though everyone who complained are lying to besmirch his favorite console, now diam diam already, only talk about the tons of overpriced accessories they bought and what other non-zelda games they are scraping up regardless how crappy and overpriced the ports are. Not saying we shld pay the Maxsoft tax, but no warranty can be a concern for this console atm. Perhaps it's a good thing there's no stock in Japan, cos it's probably better to wait a few months for Nintendo to overcome the teething problems and add desperately needed functions (like letting you copy out save files for backup, in case your Switch dies).
Best way is to wait for the 3rd batch or 4th batch or atleast the system stable before exporting it on your own risk......

From a production point of view o_o they gonna double the output......

If its only the same amount of production plant.......

We bound to see more faulty unit hahahahaha

In front of one of the shops at den den town is a message regarding Nintendo switch happening on 2nd April. Can't translate, but I'm guessing that is related to restocks.

It's a lottery, 10-11am go get a ticket, then 12pm to 4pm check if you won and buy. I tried and didn't win 😭

Thought the 10-11 thing was for pre-orders. :c Ah well, guess I'll just wait for overseas online retailers to restock.

BIC camera had a lottery today.

Realistically I am guessing it will be oos for weeks/months in Japan. I preordered from Amazon UK instead. Quite OK as VAT is discounted and there's global shipping to SG.

Still here in Japan actually, you can try Shinjuku & Nakano area, last week i scout those small shop there and they have a lots of figure and amiibo that maybe you are looking for. Still waiting for my 3rd NSwitch which i ordered on Nintendo website this morning. Got really lucky this time i managed to finish the payment transaction without hassle. Good Luck on hunting your figures, i think there are still good store in Akiba that sells a lot, just don't hope for a NSwitch. they told me the next batch will come in Apr. 13. I am also into figure and gundam stuff.

Don't be surprised that they come up with a "pro" version with a newer chip and changed parts. Nintendo always has the tendency to give their fans the middle finger.

Given switch early launch with significant hardware flaws like dock scratch , warping and port placing ,etc........

Switch pro is inevitable , its a matter of if ya willing to wait for its release for 1-2 years minimium .

They might name it switch slim or switch XL .

They wont be stupid enough to to announce any replacement model now....

They already bump up their production..... If those get struck on the shelves is like a death sentence for Nintendo......

And not possible for the current announced game......

A upgraded version will most likely come with a new system seller game hahaha
