Hey Guys,
So I grabbed the Mario Left Hori Joycons, and I can confirm that they have a power issue, they drain the battery and cause the system to heat up while on stand by, leaving my switch undocked for 4 hours has drained the battery down to 25%.

But are they good for Street Fighter?

Still waiting for Atlus to make Snowboard Kids 3

I thought there was an update to fix this problem. Has it not come out yet?

@LinktotheFuture : Apparently one of the recent firmware updates was intended to resolve the issue, but apparently it hasn't.

And I can only assume that these Joy-Con cannot be "updated" via the console in the same manner that regular Joy-Con can be updated.

More reasons I won't buy it unless it was a OEM made version.

Nintendo is not going to make an update to fix a third party issue, plus, the Nintendo Joy-Cons have their own batteries, so they are self sufficient even when physically connected to the Switch, where as, the Hori controllers require a separate power source to run all the functions of the regular controllers (minus the Bluetooth), which they get from the Switch.
so yah, it will eat battery life and no firmware in the world would fix this issue even if Nintendo could make one, save for shutting off all extra functions of non-OEM controllers beyond just the button and stick interactions, even then, it would still lower battery life some

I was referring to this article. Looks like the issue has resolved with the 6.0.0 update.
