it's probably true but it's just one of many speculative patents companies like nintendo, ms and sony hold.
most of them will never get produced.

This sounds kinda cool. But it will probably be cool for five minutes and then be boring. A lot like all of the rest of Nintendo's stuff. Still, innovation is always a good thing.

Wouldn't mind more than blueprints of the peripheral though, its a bit of a far-off call to be commenting on it now before its even confirmed to be released...

Didn't they also patent a teddy bear and bicycle peripheral for the Wiimote a while ago? I recall reading an article about how Nintendo had a bunch of wild stuff patented just in case, or whatever.

This is true. They also pattented that whole Wii Lights apparatus, and we never really saw that. I just dont understand why they feel the need to keep patenting these damn peripherals

just in case they want to use them, or possibly sue another company lol

I mean apple does it all the time, they are trying to sue companies for using the slide feature XD
