With drifting becoming an increasing issue among consumers, Nintendo has finally acknowledged the issue with a new statement which, sadly, doesn’t do much to alleviate the situation.

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 so we can help.
