New Remote Controller Add-On Patented by Nintendo

Though this patent was filed back in February, news of it has only just been recognised by the public. The layout of the buttons look an awful lot like the GameCube’s controller and as of now, there is no word on what the device will be used for. It could just be an optional casing for those who want a wireless GameCube controller or it could be used for tilt based games that need more buttons than the Wii Remote has. If you’d like to see the entire patent, you can click the US Patent &Trademark Office link below.
