If you're an early adopter, it's been two months since your Nintendo Switch pre-order arrived. Others aren't so lucky. While some folks may have capitalized on stores refreshing their Nintendo Switch stock and getting alerts when they've done so, not every gamer can say the same. Buying the console still ain't easy, and Nintendo is partly to blame. When the Nintendo Switch's next shipment will come remains a mystery, so stock is still hard to come by — unless you know where to look.
