Two years after launch, there’s still a problem where the Joy-Con occasionally seems to have a mind of its own and will continue to send an input to your game even when you’re not touching it.
After not really talking about it for 24 months (Nintendo would happily look at your Joy-Con if you paid a fee to send them in), Nintendo has finally provided a statement to The Verge about the known issue.
“At Nintendo, we take great pride in creating quality products and we are continuously making improvements to them,” they said. “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’s still not really clear what is causing the issue, and it’s kind of surprising that it hasn’t been fixed since launch, but with it being in the media more frequently in recent times, it’s obvious that Nintendo will be putting a bigger spotlight on it.
