Ah, the Joy-Con drift, a problem that was a huge scandal for Nintendo but was overshadowed by the success of the Switch. Years have passed, there are users who continue to report it and just when it seemed that the Japanese company would never do something about it, the miracle that many expected has arrived and seems to come hand in hand with the Joy-Con special edition of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.
Will this be the solution for the Joy-Con drift?
The Joy-Con drift is one of the most feared problems by Switch users, and for less, you spent thousands of pesos for the Nintendo console and it is known that the controls are not cheap, hence the fear of detecting that the stick even in neutral position it registers movement. However, a couple of weeks ago, a user shared a method that has been successful to solve the drift and that partly explains what happens, in general terms a situation of wear or sudden movement that requires that there be pressure on the back of the stick, obvious within the controller.
Well, it seems that the solution of the 1mm thick piece of cardboard could be the “cure” for the Joy-con drift because after the launch of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword and the pair of special edition Joy-Con, another user decided to open them and inside he found a pair of black strips that until now were not on any of the controls and their models, which remain in the exact position in which it was suggested to put the piece of cardboard.
Thanks to youtuber VK its known that pressure to the back of a joycon control stick stops drift. I opened my Zelda joycons and noticed strips, theyre not in any joycons me or others have seen. Please share this post. It seems nintendo fixed their biggest issue behind the scenes pic.twitter.com/FgDS1Prh11

Over 4 years, but the Joy-Con drift could be a thing of the past
The discovery has made players think that after so long, Nintendo could have done something around Joy-Con drift and that the solution is something as simple as ensuring that there is something that allows enough pressure to exist on the part. inside the stick so that drifting is a thing of the past.
Obviously, Nintendo has not mentioned anything about it, and hardly will, but it seems that we are facing good news because from now on, and in the years to come, the Joy-Con drift would be a thing of the past. It is also a positive thing for those who plan to acquire the OLED Switch, as there were doubts about the problem with the controls after Nintendo confirmed that there is no change inside.
