It seems that with each passing day a new report or rumor surround Nintendo’s upcoming NX console, and the latest may be the juiciest rumor yet.
According to a user named Idriss2Dev on Reddit, the controller for the system has been sent out to developers.
The controller, which you can see in the image below, could very well be a simple prototype or even fake. But what makes this interesting is that it appears identical to the patent that was filed by Nintendo regarding the design of the controller.
The controller is, uh, interesting to say the least. The look of the thumb sticks has me thinking that this may be no more than a first-run prototype, but they may also be touch-sensitive joysticks. In a statement released to Campus Sports regarding the matter, Nintendo said that the company “does not comment on rumors or speculation.”
Though that is the typical response in these types of situation, the lack of a firm denial will certainly keep the rumors running. Fans will just have to keep speculating and waiting for the consoles official unveiling, which is expected to come around E3 in June.
