It seems that more and more Switch owners are experiencing what is being referred to as “Joy-Con Drift” where the joystick on the controller detects movement even when nobody is touching it.
Speaking with Kotaku, a representative for Nintendo released the following statement regarding the matter.
“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.”
