Earlier this year, it was reported that some Nintendo Switch owners were reporting that they were experiencing “drifting” with their Joy-Con controls. This led to a lawsuit over the problem. It was then recently revealed that there are some Nintendo Switch Lite owners who started experiencing the same issues.
Now it looks like the Switch Lite has since been added to the class-action lawsuit that was previously filed by Chimicles Schwartz Kriner & Donaldson-Smith. According to the lawsuit, it alleged that Nintendo did not address the problem with the controllers which then found its way to the Switch Lite.
The lawsuit is even going as far as accusing Nintendo of fraud, warranty law violations, and misrepresentation, breaching implied warranties, and unjust enrichment. It has been pointed out by the folks at Gizmodo that this issue could be a bigger problem for Switch Lite owners than Switch owners.
This is because Switch owners can either buy new Joy-Con controls or send them in for repair, whereas Switch Lite owners will have to send their entire console in for repair, meaning that they will not be able to play their games during that period of time. Nintendo has yet to officially respond to the lawsuit, but hopefully the company will have a solution for the problem.
