Nintendo has commented on the current surge of Nintendo Switch Joy-Con drift issues giving an update on the on-going problem. The problem was getting so bad that it could lead to a class-action lawsuit.
Nintendo Switch users are complaining about the analog stick of the Nintendo Switch drifting on its own. This problem can start to happen after frequent use of the Nintendo Switch Joy-Con. It has been named as the Joy-Con drift issue which occurs in both the default Joy-Con and any new one that is purchased separately.
While there are many ways to solve the issue, it is still a hassle and you also have to send it back to Nintendo for repairs if you can’t do it yourself. As a result, this problem has started to annoy the users who are facing it frequently now. It was so bad that a law firm decided to investigate this issue for a potential class-action lawsuit.
There has been an increasing frequency of complaints from users on social media platforms including reddit. As a result, Nintendo has now issued an official statement on the Joy-Con drift problem. Here’s what they had to say regarding it.
At Nintendo, we take great pride in creating quality products and we are continuously making improvements to them. We are aware of recent reports that some Joy-Con controllers are not responding correctly. We want our consumers to have fun with Nintendo Switch, and if anything falls short of this goal we always encourage them to visit http://support.nintendo.com so we can help.
Recently, the company has also announced two different revisions for the Switch hardware. This includes a Lite version that is portable only and another hardware revision that is the same as the regular Switch but with better battery life.
