Joy-Con handle drift doesn’t seem like a rarity for Switch players. As early as 2019, the issue triggered a class-action lawsuit against Nintendo. Handle drift mainly occurs on the left and right rockers, although it is common, but the old one has been shy about publicly admitting, but in most cases, the official will be free repair.
Nintendo President Shuntaro Furukawa has finally publicly apologized at an investor exchange event,media reported.
Juntaro Kawakawa said he was sorry for the joy-Con handle that caused users that they would continue to optimize their products. But because the U.S. class-action case is pending, he has not been able to disclose what remedies and improvements the company has taken today.
In the folk, through disassembling and other means, players generally agree that the joy-Con handle drift is a fundamental design flaw, that is, the handle is too small to work perfectly with the relatively hard rocker for long periods of time.
