Nintendo released a statement to The Verge about Joy-Con drift today.
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.
Joy-Con drift is a growing problem for Nintendo Switch owners. This issue is when the Joy-Con input on their own, and this issue only occurs with the sticks. Some have said it is a defect in the design, while others have said it is debris getting into the stick causing it to sense input.
The issue has happened to many Switch owners, and things took a turn last week as a Class-Action lawsuit was filed against Nintendo for the drift. Chimicles Schwartz Kriner & Donaldson-Smith or CSK&D filed the Class-Action lawsuit, just mere days after opening an investigation about the problem. You can read about the Class-Action lawsuit from CSK&D here. We will keep you updated as soon as this lawsuit progresses.
