Nintendo faces yet another lawsuit over Joy-Con controller drift, this time filed in Québec.
The case is being handled by local law firm Lambert Avocat, which represents a client who has experienced issues with her controllers since 2018.
The company seeks compensation for all Québec customers who have purchased both the Switch and Switch Lite, as well as any Nintendo produced Joy-Cons and Switch Pro controllers.
Lambert Avocat's client purchased a Switch in November 2017, but noticed the left stick was registering movements without her input after 11 months.
She has since experienced this with the right stick, then the second pair of Joy-Cons she purchased, as well as a Switch Pro controller.
Lambert Avocat is now calling on any other consumers in the area who have suffered the same issues to join the lawsuit. The case is open to people who have purchased the relevant products since August 1, 2017.
The law firm argues that Joy-Con drift "constitutes an important, serious and hidden defect," and violates the Consumer Protection Act, which states goods purchased must be "durable in normal use for a reasonable length of time."
