Is This The Nintendo NX’s Controller?

Nintendo is the topic of many rumors recently. First, Nikkei reported that Nintendo is planning to shut down Wii U production at the end of this year, to which the big N responded that they will continue to manufacture the console in 2017. Now, the Wii U‘s successor, the NX is our topic… or its supposed controller, at least! Is this what the controller will look like?

Let’s put it this way: the way the NX‘s controller looks is extremely unusual. Just look at the two photos below our article. The person who owns this controller leaked a few other details. „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 don’t believe this will be the final design. Haptic feedback feels like Apples ‘taptic’ engine. Not like regular rumble. 3.5mm headphone jack on the bottom.” Buttons? They might be similar to a cell phone’s touch screen.

The NX’s controller is going to be another huge departure from what we have seen with the Wii or the Wii U…
