Nintendo Switch OLED Will Use The Same Joy-Cons — Confirmed By Nintendo

If you’ve ever suf­fered from the pesky issue know as Joy-Con drift, well, here’s some bad news. The new Nin­ten­do Switch mod­el isn’t going to sport new Joy-Cons. A rep­re­sen­ta­tive from Nin­ten­do (via GameSpot) con­firmed that cur­rent Joy-Cons design will remain the same for the Nin­ten­do Switch OLED.

The Joy-Con con­troller con­fig­u­ra­tion and func­tion­al­i­ty did not change with Nin­ten­do Switch sys­tem (OLED mod­el),” the rep­re­sen­ta­tive stat­ed. “The con­fig­u­ra­tion and func­tion­al­i­ty is the same as that of the Joy-Con con­trollers for the Nin­ten­do Switch system.”

A good por­tion of Switch own­ers have com­plained about the drift on Joy-Con con­trollers, a well-known phe­nom­e­non among the con­troller using com­mu­ni­ty. It caus­es the stick to send sig­nals of move­ment when it’s in the neu­tral posi­tion. Nin­ten­do’s pres­i­dent Shuntaro Furukawa apol­o­gized for this drift back in June 2020, and sev­er­al law­suits are pend­ing over this in the U.S.

The Nin­ten­do Switch OLED will cost $350, fifty more than the base Switch. Although it was sup­posed to be an upgrade of the base mod­el, many expect a “Switch Pro” that would boost the con­sole’s res­o­lu­tion to 4K. Obvi­ous­ly, this is not the case, despite a pre­vi­ous report from Bloomberg back in March.
