"I spent only 20 hours on it and it began to show drifting for joy."
American players who have problems with Joy-Cons on the newly released Nintendo Switch Lite console have joined the collective action in which he sued Nintendo for faulty thumbs.
According to Polygon, the lawsuit has been extended to those affected by Joy-Con drift on the recently released Lite, and some say that Joy-Cons on their new devices began to "drift" in just a few hours of use.
The lawsuit claims that Joy-Con controllers are "faulty" because over time they may begin to "drift" – causing movement from the analog stick, even if the user does not control it at that time – and accuses fraud and warranty breach as well as breaches state consumer protection regulations.
"I can't believe it, my Nintendo Switch Lite console is already drifting," said one complaint. "I was playing BOTW and the camera was moving without touching the analog stick. I tried to calibrate and update the controllers, but it was still the same. "
"I beat Awakening Link & # 39; and on the weekend with my original Switch Lite system, I put it on for only 20 hours and it began to show a thrill of joy," added another complaint cited in the documentation. "Why does this happen earlier than with the previous Switch?"
"Japanese Nintendo refuses to recognize the problem, so of course they didn't fix it," said one bad commentator on Reddit. "Repairing it would automatically admit they knew it was a problem."
American lawyers filed a class action lawsuit against Nintendo after concerns over Joy-Con drifting last July.
"At Nintendo, we're proud of creating high-quality products and are constantly improving them," spokesman Nintendo UK told Eurogamer at the time. "We are aware of recent reports that some Joy-Con controllers are not responding properly. We want our customers to have a good time with Nintendo Switch, and if something doesn't meet that goal, we always encourage them to visit http: //support.nintendo .co.uk so we can help. "
