Traditionally, Nintendo is a company that zigs when everyone else zags. When Nintendo announced the partnership with DeNA, everyone thought it was a good idea. Which makes GAMESbrief’s Nicholas Lovell think Nintendo has yet to reveal its full plans for mobile. In an article posted to Gamastura, Lovell hypothesizes that Nintendo’s secret plan for the NX is to make the ultimate controller for the smartphone era of gaming.
Nintendo will harness the wearable/sensor research that comes out of its health and wellbeing division to create a new type of controller. My current guess is a glove of some sort, but it could be a smart watch and a couple of rings, or something like that.
