There's a lawsuit a brewin'.
New Joy-Cons

A law firm in the States are apparently getting ready to file a class-action lawsuit against Nintendo. The potential lawsuit stems from the growing anger over "Joy-Con drift" issues that have plagued the Nintendo Switch controllers since launch.

If you don't know what Joy-Con drift is, Kotaku actually put up an article about this growing problem just this past week. In short, it's when the Switch detects movement from a stick that the player may not even be touching. For example: If the right stick controls the camera, you may notice the camera start to move slowly even though you aren't touching the right stick. Of course, that's just one example. It could also impact navigating menus, character movement, aiming, or literally anything else that the stick are being used for.

Some consumers have found that the issue is typically caused by dirt or debris getting under the sticks. A potential fix that you can try is using a bit of rubbing alcohol to clean the area and applying a silicon covering as a preventative measure. The question here is if this is an issue with Nintendo's manufacturing process. If so, there are grounds for a lawsuit. If not, well, there's not much chance of a lawsuit getting off the ground, let alone succeeding.

The law firm of Chimicles, Schwartz Kriner, and Donaldson-Smith are looking into the possibility of filing a lawsuit over this as Nintendo has remained absolutely silent on the matter. The firm posted the following on their website.

CSK&D is investigating a potential class action based upon reports that the Nintendo Joy-Con controller for their Nintendo Switch gaming console can experience joystick drift issues. Specifically, it is reported that the joystick on the Joy-Con will automatically register movement when the joystick is not being controlled and interfere with gameplay.
If this issue of "Joy-Con drift" doesn't deter you, then perhaps you may be interested in the new colors of Joy-Cons recently announced. You can see a picture of them above. They are Blue/Neon Yellow and Neon Purple/Neon Orange. These sets will be released on October 4 for $79.99 (USD).
