Nintendo has faced a number of lawsuits over the past two years over Switch’s Joy-Con drift issue. Every few months it seems that world fame game the developer is left with another legal case to deal with. Now, as we entered 2021, if you thought this trend would finally end, you’d be wrong.
Another lawsuit against Nintendo was recently filed in Quebec, Canada, for what else, but Joy-Con drift issues. The case is being run by a local law firm called Lambert Avocat which represents a customer who would have had drift problems with their Switch controllers dating from 2018. The lawsuit is specifically of the class action type and Lambert would be seeking “compensation for all Quebec consumers who bought the Nintendo Les Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite game consoles, as well as Joy-Con and Nintendo Switch Pro controllers. “
As for the other details of this case, Lambert says their client started experiencing drift issues with their Joy-Cons around 11 months after getting their Switch. At first, they contacted Nintendo about the issue and ended up sending the controller in for repair. Within two months of getting the Joy-Con back, they then started having the same issue with their opposite handheld device. This drift then affected another pair of Joy-Cons which were purchased in addition to a Pro controller which was also in use.
Lambert is researching all of the other Switch owners who have purchased the console since August 1, 2017 and also had these same issues to join the lawsuit. Right now, the case needs to be approved more by a judge before it can move forward, but there’s a good chance that will continue to gain traction.
