Fresh off its Nintendo Direct announcements the other day, the gaming business is already teasing a “brand-new experience” for the Switch over– some bizarre new activity controller device that uses the console’s Joy-Con controllers, promising more information on September 12th.
The intro is light on details however it appears that there are two items of the tool: a key, versatile ring that Joy-Con half is placed right into, and which has some additional handles around the circumference that seems to be the significant “controller”, as well as a second leg strap that the various other Joy-Con goes in (probably for some fitness monitoring functions?) The video clip reveals players intensely squeezing the ring, leaping about, as well as running in area, which seems to imply that it’ll be some fitness or exercise experience, yet without even more information, it’s tough to inform what exactly Nintendo has actually prepared.
Nintendo isn’t an unfamiliar person to strange, motion controller based health and fitness products– the Wii console notoriously had Wii Fit, a fitness game that included a range as well as count on motion regulated mini-games for a workout. There was also the infamous Wii Vitality Sensor, a canceled accessory that would undoubtedly have gauged gamer’s heart beats for gameplay objectives, although just what it was implied to do was never made completely clear.
Whatever it is, it appears to be following in the footprints of last year’s Nintendo Labo cardboard devices, which likewise rely upon the Joy-Con controllers activity controls and also sensors to allow brand-new and exciting\ gameplay mechanism. Probably, we’ll discover more next week when Nintendo makes its news.
