Shouldn't be a problem to get it repaired, EU law is pretty good when it comes to warranty.
AKA Junk But I guess free stuff is free stuff
Actually you can if you're sneaky at it and not exactly moral or legal:
Buy a same colored Joy-Con from store.
Take out the new Joy-Con.
Place the defective one in the box.
Return the box with the defective Joy-Con to store.
This doesn't work if the broken joycon is the one from the neon pack since colors are reversed (in the neon switch pack the left joycon is the blue joycon and in the colored joycon pack without switch the blue joycon is the right one iirc)
My left Joy-con had that problem too, since I was pushing UP so much playing Zelda. I bought the red and blue set, but I didn't need 4 Joy-cons... So I traded the grey set in to GameStop, and since I was a pro member and had a$5 more promo card too, they stacked everything to get me $42 for them as in-store credit. I put that towards Splatoon 2 for my girlfriend's Switch that I won here on GBATemp. So I essentially bought Splatoon 2 for her for only $18 USD with NO TAX (I was in Oregon, one of the few states without sales tax). I'm just shocked they didn't even test the Joy-cons to see if they worked, if they stayed clicked in, nothing. He literally too them from my hands, barely glanced at them, and set them on the counter. So you might wanna dfo what I did if Nintendo stiffs you, just trade them in towards a second set.
Sure it is still possible. For example: if your Switch bundled left Joy-Con is defective, then buy a complete set Blue Joy-Con controller. Problem with this is you have to keep your used right Joy-Con unless you buy a complete Red set controller as well, however doing this will arouses suspicion if trying to replace both at the same time.
I live in Denmark and had the same issue with both Joy cons, also after 6 months. I was afraid of taking it for warranty for obvious reasons. I managed to keep the console with me because I did not want it replace of be wipe off the save data. They return the joy cons a week later with those parts replaced in both joy cons and even described it in the service receipt that it was replaced those parts and received also a nintendo switch cleaning cloth for the screen. No charge. I would recommend take it to warranty.
Yes, and it should be free.
Source: received my replacement joycon yesterday.
did you receive a bag of goodies like @PaBo ?
no. I'm sad now.
