Nintendo faces another class action lawsuit for its problems with the Joy-Khan skid. The complaint was filed in Seattle court on Tuesday. This is a technical issue that has caused a lot of problems for the company; It faces several lawsuits in the United States and beyond. A judge in Washington The previous case was moved to arbitration, Another, filed in California in October, Is still in the courts.
Joy-con slip is a problem that occurs when joysticks “slip” on Nintendo’s Joy-con controllers, causing a character or cursor to move accidentally. Players have been complaining about this activity since the console was released, but the first lawsuit was filed in 2019. Nintendo soon began offering free repairs to controllers affected by the Joy-Con slip. Problems continued with newer console models such as the Nintendo Switch Lite.
In the new case, the plaintiff’s attorneys outline a strong technical breakdown completed by an expert. Expert says that wearing the inner straps of the controller causes Joy-Khan slip. Lawyers allege that Nintendo was aware of the problem and did not properly inform its customers; They call Consumer lawyer hearings in France, Belgium and Switzerland, as well as Nintendo President Shundaro Furukawa’s comment on the “customer problem” related to the Joy-Khan skid.
The case underscores Minor’s experience with the Nintendo Switch system, noting that the slide started three months after the console was purchased. The controllers were fixed by Nintendo, but failed again “several months later”. Nintendo adjusted the controllers for a fee of $ 40. (It is noteworthy that Miner used his own money.) This cycle continued until three pairs of Joy-Cons.
In this case the photos of the technical teardrop and the electron microscope images show the damage in the circuits. The lawsuit alleges Nintendo’s illegal and unfair behavior and consumer fraud.
Although unrelated, in October, Nintendo slashed the price of its single Joy-con controllers by $ 10, the first price drop in three years since its launch. A Joy-Con now. Costs 39.99 – Definitely not cheap if you need a replacement.
