The internet is on fire with speculation following a Reddit post earlier today that claims to be showcasing Nintendo's NX controller.
The design seems to conform to rumors of what the controller will look like, following the patented designs of the controller as well as earlier leaked images. If accurate, the controller on display in the image probably isn't the final design. It is likely that it comes from a developer kit sent out by Nintendo and will likely go through some small iterative improvements before commercial release.
From the images, the controller appears to have two shoulder buttons along with a home button and two joysticks. Additional buttons seem like they will be added digitally as seen in an earlier leaked image. These on-screen could include some improved form of haptic feedback to give them the feeling of having pressed something. It also includes a headphone jack which lends some credence to the rumors that Nintendo wants to make the controller its own device that people can take with them on the go.
Similarities between reflections in the leaked NX screens and trees around the headquarters of Swedish game developer Massive have led some on various forums around the internet to speculate that the leak originated there.
If these are accurate, what do you all think of the direction Nintendo is taking with their next-gen console?
