Could These Pictures Be Nintendo’s Rumored NX Controller

A series of pictures have been circulating online in Reddit whereby user perkele37 claims the device pictures is the yet-to-be-revealed Nintendo NX controller.

Looking very Vita-esque, the (supposedly) NX controller sports an oval shape design with two nubs. The design looks to be similar to the controller design that Nintendo patented in June last year. The patent (which you can see below) bears an uncanny resemblance to the photos.

perkele37 clarified that the controller unit is a Dev-kit and that it wouldn’t be the final design. He also mentioned a few details regarding the controller and how it works:

- 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.
- 3.5mmheadphone jack on the bottom.

Kotaku reached to Nintendo on comments regarding the leak but was met with “We have nothing to announce on this topic.” So it seems that netizens will continue to speculate on whether this could be the Nintendo NX controller. Most likely we’ll get some sort of confirmation from Nintendo when E3 rolls around.
