Shortly after the announcement of the new OLED model of Nintendo Switch we learned that this version will also include the Joy-Con from the standard edition of the console. Today we have news about this.
After hearing this news, The Verge has had the opportunity to contact Nintendo to ask if the controllers included in the Nintendo Switch (OLED model) will have the dreaded Joy-Con Drift. As you know, this Joy-Con issue causes some controllers to activate their sticks without the user touching them, something that has been happening practically since the Nintendo Switch’s release.
While Nintendo has already confirmed that the Joy-Con included in the OLED model is the same as the standard one, there is hope that the production of this model will fix the bug, although it seems that, at least for the time being, Nintendo has avoided making a clear statement. When asked by The Verge, the company’s representative only confirmed that “the configuration and functionality of the Joy-Con controllers remain unchanged on Nintendo Switch (OLED model)”. For this reason, the news outlet notes that Nintendo “has not addressed the answer head-on”.
We leave you with the full message from Nintendo, where it reiterates, as on previous occasions, that users have customer service at their disposal. However, it does not elaborate on whether current Joy-Con production is attempting to correct this issue:
The configuration and functionality of the Joy-Con controllers remain unchanged on Nintendo Switch (OLED model). The configuration and functionality is the same as the Joy-con controllers for the Nintendo Switch console. At Nintendo, we pride ourselves on creating quality products and continuously improving them. We are aware of reports that some Joy-Con controllers have not responded correctly. We want our consumers to have fun with Nintendo Switch, and if something falls short of this goal, we always encourage them to visit https://support.nintendo.com, so we can help.
