Unless you've been living in the Water Temple for the last few weeks, you'll that Nintendo's latest console (and handheld) was released yesterday (March 3).

Before the Nintendo Switch was even released, gaming publications and journalists spoke about a commonly recurring issue of the left Joy-Con controller falling out of synchronisation with the console, interrupting play.

People were hoping this would be fixed in the day-one patch, but it looks like this hasn't been the case.

Luckily, Nintendo's official website has published a guide on how to fix the sync issues. Well, we say 'luckily'...

Nintendo's 'solution' is more common sense than any specific button combination or setting you need to do.

Keep your Switch console away from wireless devices, fishtanks and your TV. You should also turn off your laptops, tablets, microwaves, mobile phones and basically anything that emits a wireless signal. Easy as that.

It's important to say these issues haven't affected all users, and in the time Digital Spy spent with the console we never experienced it ourselves.

In our review of the system, we said the Nintendo Switch is "an alluring device, for sure, with one amazing game and a whole heap of potential and goodwill, but as ever with a launch-day games console, you're taking a punt on the future."

That one amazing game is The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, by the way.
