New images of what appears to be the Nintendo NX controller have surfaced on Reddit. The user attached 3 photos as well as notes regarding the controller…

 

  • 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.
  • 3.5mm headphone jack on the bottom.

To help drive the rumors, Game Informer’s editor-in-chief Andy McNamara said  “I had heard that the NX wouldn’t have face buttons, so the leaked pictures match what I was told but was unable to confirm.”

Keep in mind this is still a rumor and Nintendo have not confirmed anything at the time of publishing.
