I thought this was getting discontinued by Nintendo.
Was that confirmed?
I don't think any "official" source has said so, certainly not Nintendo themselves. Every quote I've seen to this effect seems to trace back to "My buddy who works at Store XYZ".
I've also seen similar quotes from equivalent sources that say "Production with continue through 2017", and "Production will ramp up after Switch levels out". I'd consider those equally speculative.
One retailer had a restock 2 days ago. Of course it sold out in minutes however. I don't think all hope should be abandoned yet though.
