Since the release of the Nintendo Switch in March 2017, many players have been dealing with Joy-Con drift, a hardware problem causing unwanted movement and actions. The problem escalated in 2019, when a class action lawsuit was filed in the United States, and various consumer associations pinned Nintendo.
As reported Kotaku, Shuntaro Furukawa, President of Nintendo, apologized during a recent question and answer session published in Japanese. Nintendo had already expressed itself on the subject expressed by indicating that it was aware of the problem, but it was here the big boss who spoke:
Regarding the Joy-Con, we apologize for any problems caused to our customers. We continue to focus on improving our products, but since the Joy-Con is the subject of a class action lawsuit in the United States and this is still an outstanding issue, we would like to refrain from ” enter into the details of the actions carried out.
Nintendo will say no more right now, but Furukawa’s intervention is never trivial. The class action is therefore continuing in North America, while in France, UFC-Que Choisir had given notice to Nintendo about Joy-Con Drift, and that the association 60 Million Consumers had classified the Switch among the worst products of 2019.
