Nintendo offers a vague statement in regards to recent Joy-Con drift issues
While a potential lawsuit brews in the background, Nintendo appears to have taken notice of the recent spike in Joy-Con drift issues. After last week's public reveal of CSK&D investigating potential legal action against the gaming giant, Nintendo has released an official statement on the matter, acknowledging the problem, though not addressing it. When contacted by multiple news outlets, Nintendo responded with the following:
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.
The company's support page has also been slightly edited, adding a direct link for consumers that are having issues with their Joy-Cons not functioning or responding correctly. It's also now easier to begin the process of sending in your Joy-Cons to be repaired by Nintendo, though this is only in effect for the United States and Canada, currently. Despite Nintendo's answer being vague and ignoring the fact that the Joy-Con drift issues could entirely be their fault, the threat of legal action does seem to have at least caused some effect for the time being.
