Recently, there have been reports that there are a growing number of Nintendo Switch owners who are experiencing issues with their Joy-Cons, where it seems to “drift” by itself during a game, which can be rather annoying. Nintendo did not seem to have any official response to the problem, or procedures in place to address the issue, which they could now be in trouble for.

The lawyers at Chimicles Schwartz Kriner & Donaldson-Smith have filed for a class-action lawsuit against Nintendo in the US, where they alleged that Nintendo sold the Joy-Cons despite knowing that there were issues with it. The lawsuit also alleges that Nintendo has violated California’s fraud laws along with state and federal warranty laws, and are seeking monetary damages.

Nintendo has since issued a statement to The Verge in which they say, “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.”

It is unclear if the class-action lawsuit will go through, but safe to say that there are many gamers who aren’t too thrilled about it.
