An insurance service for the Joy-Con Drift at Nintendo

If you are a Switch owner and have never experienced Joy-Con Drift, consider yourself lucky, because this problem happens to more than one user of Nintendo’s latest console. For those who haven’t been following the case, the Joy-Con Drift is a technical glitch that causes your stick to get stuck in one direction on its own, making it impossible to play with. To get into the technical details, this problem is due to premature wear of a plastic in the Joy-Con that Nintendo has described as inevitable. Until then, the Kyoto firm had not offered a lasting solution to this problem, except to change the Joy-Cons if they are still under warranty… be aware that in Japan, a official repair has been launched by Nintendo to repair different Switch models. At around €1.50 per month or €15 per year, this service called Wide Care guarantees coverage of various types of repairs as well as the shipping of the console. Obviously, the three models of the console are covered by this service, both the basic model, the Lite and the OLED. However, be careful, there are still limits since this service is limited to six repairs per year. For now, the service is not available in France.
