My original pair does. I just assumed it was on my end, as it may have gotten banged up in my backpack during my travels to E3, Florida, etc several times since early '17. But hearing this is such a widespread problem and that Nintendo is repairing them for free, I may have to send those suckers in.



Around the Network

I got a replay back from nintendo repair. They told me to ship the faulty joy con with Purolator to Vancouver. Cheapest shipping method with Purolator one way is CAD 48. They didn't say anything about the repair being free or who pays for the return shipping. It's cheaper to buy a new one. A set is CAD 99 with free shipping on Amazon and you can probably get them for less somewhere else. Pointless.

Oh and estimated 2 weeks time after they receive the item.



UPDATE: Sent a pair in to nintendo. They gave their purolator account for shipping. A month later I recieved joycons back. Left one looks like a new one, right one looks like original with new stick installed. This was a launch day system so beyond warranty. Both work perfect now. Total cost including shipping: $0.00 No questions asked.

My other sons system has started to drift on left joycon so have set up a repair for that one now as well. So should have 2 working sets of joycons again soon with no charge.
