Nintendo patent shows hinged Joy-con

Recommended Posts


I'm guessing this was one of the ideas Nintendo was throwing around when they were prototyping the Switch. I don't see how this design would be that useful, unless they were going for a Wii Nunchuk desgin for when using the Joy-Con separated. Plus adding more moving parts means a higher chance of it breaking/wearing out overtime.

Saw news about this floating around yesterday.  Without more information I just don't see the need or a sense of practicality for the joy con to be hinged like that.  Maybe cause it's early and my brain's creative side is still slumbering, but I don't see a real use or reason for it to work like that.
