Joycons are seemingly completely out of stock on Amazon in Europe [Super Mario Party the cause?]

We also had information in the Japanese sales thread that Super Mario Party was responsable for a +200% increase in Joycons sales, is the same effect in play in Europe too?

Google translate:
Switch 'Super Mario Party' first debuted for the first time. Aside from popularity of software, Joy-Con peripheral equipment sales are about three times as much as regular weekly, etc.

Wouldn't be surprised. This game is the first reason I've personally come across to buy a second pair. Decided against it but never even considered it once before. Maybe they should do a joycon + game bundle like Wii Play.

Isn’t this more Amazon shenanigans ?
Probably both combined, stock lower than it should be because Amazon & Nintendo situation, demand higher than expected because Mario Party

Perfect time for most owner to get that second Joycon pair before the Holidays and Family time...makes sense.
