A mother and son team filed a lawsuit against Nintendo on Monday over long-reported problems with their popular Nintendo Switch controls, Wired reported.
Joy Cons, as the controls are called, tend to "slide" in a way that sends characters in directions without moving the device, according to the suit.
The experience, reported by Wired, is much like a "ghost" playing the game – a problem that Nintendo has already apologized for and fixed for free. According to Monday's suit, as piggybacks on similar "Joy-Con drift" suits, it has not been enough.
The complaint, filed in a federal court in Northern California, by Luz Sanchez and her subordinate son, describes how his wife. Sanchez bought a Nintendo Switch for his son in December 201
Her suit claims that Nintendo has not done enough to fix the problem or warn customers in advance. "The defendant continues to market and sell the products with full knowledge of the defect and without disclosing the Joy-Con Drift defect to consumers in its marketing, marketing or packaging," the complaint states. "The defendant had a financial motive for concealing the defect, as it did not want to stop selling the products and / or would have to spend a significant amount of money to remedy the defect."
