Since previews of Switch hardware emerged yesterday, some sites and journalists have been reporting occasional issues with the Joy-Con. Affected users have experienced issues in which the controllers “desync” or disconnect for a few seconds. GameXplain attempted to look into the issue here.
We’ve been taking a wait-and-see approach with this story since all of the information is not entirely clear currently. We do know that it doesn’t affect everyone. After experiencing many hours with Switch, I personally didn’t encounter any problems myself.
According to Kotaku’s Stephen Totilo, Nintendo is now investigating the situation. We’ll let you know if we hear more.
