Has anyone in America ever seen them sold singularly?  I know that was a big selling point when the Switch came out, that if you had a faulty/broken one, you could just buy a replacement for it instead of having to buy a whole new pair.  But I’ve never seen them sold separately anywhere in America; only in pairs.
