Class Action Lawsuit Investigation Due to “Drifting Issues”

The frustration and in some cases, outright anger, regarding the drifting issue with Joy-Cons has come to a head—an American law firm is preparing a class action lawsuit against Nintendo. The firm behind this potential suit is Chimicles, Schwartz Kriner & Donaldson-Smith, and they’ve posted a statement on their website regarding their intent:

“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.”

Nintendo isn’t new to lawsuits, however—they’ve dealt with numerous patent claims and other accusations since what seems like time immemorial. The reason this particular suit has come to light is because the firm is publicly asking anyone who has or is experiencing Joy-Con drift issues to contact their attorneys via an online form.

Legit or ridiculous? Your call.
