Anger over Joy-Con drifting issues appears to have finally boiled over, with a US law firm reportedly preparing to file a class-action lawsuit against Nintendo.
Details about this come straight from Chimicles, Schwartz Kriner & Donaldson-Smith – the firm currently looking into the possibility of a such a lawsuit. Here are some additional details from its website:
CSK&D is investigating a potential class action based upon reports that the Nintendo Joy-Con controller for their Nintendo Switch gaming console can experience joystick drift issues. Specifically, it is reported that the joystick on the Joy-Con will automatically register movement when the joystick is not being controlled and interfere with gameplay.
This obviously isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Nintendo’s legal section has had to deal with plenty of other legal patent claims over the years. The firm currently making headlines is asking anyone impacted by Joy-Con drift issues to contact its attorneys, by filling out an online form.
