Nintendo Finally Breaks Silence Surrounding Joy-Con Drift

Joy-Con Drift

Joy-Con Drift has been an issue for Nintendo Switch users for a while now. Fans have complained all over social media but Nintendo kept silent until now. Nintendo has now confirmed that it knows of the issue and that the company is working on a fix.

Recently Nintendo announced new joy-con colors and fans were upset that Nintendo would rather introduce more colors than concentrate on fixing the joy-con drift issue. Nintendo has now commented on the matter and here is what the company had to say regarding the matter:

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 so we can help.

This is a very vague statement and we are not sure what Nintendo is doing in order to fix the joy-con drift issue. We do know that in the past couple of days, the company has announced the new Nintendo Switch Lite. Nintendo has also updated the original Switch with a better battery. Joy-con drift could be the next thing that the company is going to look into.

It is worth mentioning that a class-action lawsuit was filed against Nintendo by the law offices of Chimicles, Shwartz Kriner & Donaldson-Smith. All this was due to the joy-con drift issue. The official website of the firm mentions the following:

The complaint, filed in the United States District Court for the Western District of Washington, alleges that the joysticks on Joy-Con controllers are defective, leading users to experience drift issues. Specifically, the complaint alleges that the joystick on the Joy-Con controllers will automatically register movement when the joystick is not being controlled by the user and interfere with gameplay.

It will be interesting to see how this case progressed. Nintendo has not commented on the matter yet. We will keep you updated regarding the case so stay tuned for more news.

Let us know what you think about the joy-con drift issue and whether or not you have been affected by this problem.
