Nintendo Of America President Addresses Joy-Con Connectivity Issues And Dock Scratching

Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime has spoken to TIME about a number of issues that have cropped up regarding the Nintendo Switch. One of the things that Reggie addressed is the Joy-Con connectivity problem that some people have been experiencing. He also talked about the fact that some people’s tablets are being scratched when taken in and out of the Nintendo Switch dock. Here’s what he had to say:

On reports of connectivity issues with some Joy-Cons

“First, we’ve seen the inquiries, and we here in the Americas are looking at all the information we can get our hands on. We are in the early days of a system launch, and so for us, we want as much consumer feedback as possible. We are directing consumers to contact us through Nintendo Support for any and all potential questions they may have.”

“Specifically on Joy-Con syncing, all I can tell you is that we are aware of and have seen some of the reports. We’re asking consumers a lot of questions. That’s why we want to get consumers on our help line, so we can get as much information to understand the situation as possible. And so we are in a fact-finding mode, to really understand the situation and the scenarios. And with that information, we’ll look and see what the next steps are.”

Again, this is why we’re encouraging consumers to reach out to us directly. We have done, as you know, literally hundreds of events, starting with our activity back in January, and most recently the various tours that we continue to take the system out on. As soon as I heard of this report, I asked my teams, “Have we seen this in our own experience?” And the candid answer has been no.”

“So throughout all of those experiences, throughout all the docking and undocking we’ve done, we haven’t seen it. So this is one where if it is happening, we want to understand more as to what the specific situation is. Which is why we want consumers to let us know through our support site.”
