Nintendo Is Being Sued Over Joy-Con Drift Yet Again, This Time By A Child


Switch© Nintendo Life

Nintendo is facing yet more trouble over the Joy-Con drift phenomenon as a mother and her 10-year-old child file a class-action lawsuit against the company.

‘Joy-Con drift’ refers to an issue where your Nintendo Switch controller will register movement even when you aren’t applying any pressure to the control stick. The problem has brought about a number of lawsuits, and has even forced Nintendo’s president to issue an apology.

As reported by Wired, this latest lawsuit has been filed by a woman named Luz Sanchez and her son, who say that Nintendo hasn’t done enough to fix an issue it is well aware of.

Sanchez explains that the family console was purchased in December 2018, with Joy-Con drift trouble starting to appear within a month. Within a year, “the Joy-Con drift became so pronounced that the controllers became inoperable for general gameplay use,” the complaint says. A second set of Joy-Con controllers were purchased, but seven months later, they faced the same issue.

Despite Nintendo’s efforts to fix faulty controllers, the lawsuit argues that Nintendo is in the wrong for selling knowingly faulty products in the first place. The complaint reportedly reads, “Defendant continues to market and sell the Products with full knowledge of the defect and without disclosing the Joy-Con Drift defect to consumers in its marketing, promotion, or packaging.”

It continues, “Defendant has had a financial motive to conceal the defect, as it did not want to stop selling the Products, and/or would need to expend a significant amount of money to cure the defect.”

The plaintiffs are reportedly asking for over $5,000,000 in damages.
