Leaked Images of NX controller revealed fake

“Leaked” image dating back to Dec. 2015

A user on Reddit “leaked” images of a prototype for the new Nintendo NX controller that was labeled “CONFIDENTIAL PROPERTY”. As Nintendo has been very tight-lipped about their upcoming console, this leak appeared to be very convincing as it aligned with previously leaked designs and patent information.

Nintendo fans on Reddit bemoaned the design, unsettled by the lack of physical buttons aside from the two analog sticks on the left and right. Fortunately, these new leaked images were admitted to be a hoax and the NX Controllers from the images were created by a fan using a 3D printer. Watch his confession below.

I’m relieved this isn’t the official design of the NX controller but all the leaked images I’ve seen to date feature a similar design. I prefer my controller with physical buttons which is the reason why I’ve generally stayed away from mobile gaming for so long. I’m trying to give Nintendo more credit for their design abilities, but lately I’ve been losing my faith in them. As for this fake controller, doesn’t it remind you of someone?
