NX Controller Rumor 02NX Controller Rumor 01

Not too long ago, a grainy photo surfaced that was purported to be the controller for Nintendo’s new console, codenamed “NX.” It seemed to match the designs laid out in a patent filed by the company last year, but the image was met with expected skepticism and doubt.

However, a second set of pictures of the device have recently appeared from a different source, lending a little bit of possible legitimacy to the original claim.

In the Reddit thread where the new photos first popped up, the poster perkele37 specified that the object is the NX controller and not the console itself. They also claim that it is a development unit, meaning its design is still subject to change. Other details mentioned:

  • Only the upper ‘nubs’ of the sticks move. The bottom part is static (kind of like the circle pad, but it moves along the bottom ‘sphere’.
  • The rollers on the top feel and look pretty much identical to a mouse scroll-wheel. Though I do don’t believe this will be the final design.
  • Haptic feedback is feels like Apples ‘taptic’ engine. Not like regular rumble.
  • 3.5mm headphone jack on the bottom

As for the source of the leak, based on the keyboard and reflections in one of the photos, NeoGAF user Guevara believes that the photo may have been taken at the offices of The Division developer Massive Entertainment.

In any case, while the device does feature a similar design to Nintendo’s patent, there is still nothing to indicate that this is in any way official. Nintendo plans to talk about the NX some time around E3, so we’ll find out then if any of these claims are true.
