PSA – Nintendo Switch Sports – Joy-Con Safety

Long-time Nintendo fans may recall that when Wii Sports was first introduced, there were several reports of gamers accidently destroying their TVs and furniture with their Wii remotes, either by not paying attention to their surroundings or by not properly fastening their controllers.

With the debut of Nintendo Switch Sports just around the corner, Nintendo published a public service announcement to gamers warning them about Joy-con safety. The typical advice is to make sure there is enough clear space around them before playing the game, to watch small children while they are playing, and to wear a Joy-Con wrist strap.

Following these safety precautions is likely even more critical for Nintendo Switch Sports, considering that the Joy-cons are much smaller and more delicate than Wii remotes. If you decide to buy the game when it comes out on April 29th, 2022, please play responsibly.
