It seems Nintendo has struck a nerve with the Coral Switch Lite in Japan. Consumers were extremely eager to snatch up the new color, and it appears that the device is virtually sold out. Just two days after launching, Amazon Japan, Rakuten Books, 7Net, Yodobashi Camera, Bic Camera, and the My Nintendo Store are all sold out online. Brick-and-mortar retailers like Yodobashi Camera and Bic Camera are completely sold out as well.
We're not quite sure how coronavirus concerns impacted production runs for the Coral Switch Lite, but whatever the case is, it's clear there weren't enough units to go around in Japan. For those hard up for a Switch, the original Turquoise, Yellow, and Gray Switch Lite options seem to be available at multiple retailers.
