Nintendo Says Joy-Con Drift Isn’t Real

Get Your Camera Out

Have you been experiencing Joy-Con drift? Nintendo doesn’t think so. Luckily, there’s something you can do about it. In an email posted to Reddit by user Mittenscone, US law firm Chimicles Schwartz Kriner & Donaldson-Smith (CSK&D) has confirmed two things. Not only are they in charge of putting together the class-action lawsuit against Nintendo in regards to the Joy-Con drift issue, but also what they need from the public to strengthen the case.

Aside from the videos mentioned below that CSK&D is looking for, they’re also imploring Nintendo Switch users that have experienced Joy-Con drift to send in a detailed write-up of their history with the system. They’d like you to identify why you purchased the Switch, what the console’s repair history looks like, and to describe the issues you’ve been having.

Portions of the email from CSK&D read as follows:

“Thank you for contacting our law firm about the Nintendo Switch Joy-Con Drift litigation. We are working on putting together a montage of video clips from Nintendo Switch owners such as yourself as a way to give voice to the joy-con drift issues you’ve experienced. This will be helpful to us in responding to Nintendo’s arguments about how this isn’t a real problem or hasn’t caused anyone any inconvenience.

In an effort to humanize and demonstrate these issues and their impact on consumers, it would be helpful to our prosecution of the case if you would submit a short (90 seconds or less) video to us describing your experience with the Joy-Con drift on your controllers. We will combine the results we receive from all of the consumers who contacted us into a video that we plan to share with Nintendo’s attorneys and the company’s representatives.”
