Nintendo Switch News: Motion Controllers Hinted By GameStop CEO
Nintendo pretty much pioneered motion controls so it has been expected that it will also be applied for the Nintendo Switch. Recently speculations about this have almost reached confirmation as GameStop CEO Paul Raines put out interesting information that might have unraveled some mysterious information for the handheld-console hybrid.
According to PVP Live, It appears that Nintendo Switch will utilize motion controls for some of its games. A comment by Raines was stated during an investor relations call for GameStop saying that motion games are more fun for children. Raines says, "A movement-related game is more fun for kids, you know, taking those accessories off. . .you can really do a lot of interesting things with that in gameplay."
Based on the statement, Raines' words "taking those accessories off" refers to the JoyCon pads which slide on and off the Nintendo Switch. At this point, there are 2 possibilities for the implementation of motion controllers. First, the existing JoyCons (the ones on the video reveal) will be motion sensitive. This is less likely due to the tiny size but if Nintendo pulls this off, it would be another breakthrough. Second, if you take off the JoyCons, you can replace it with another set of controllers. Here's where the motion sensitive versions of JoyCons would come in.
PVP Live also states that Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima implied that there are still unannounced peripherals for the Nintendo Switch. As taken from Kimishima's actual words, "You can assume that there will be a wider array." One of these could be motion sensitive controllers.
There are already lots of ideas for the Nintendo Switch's JoyCon replacements so the best bet would go to the path that the motion controllers will be an add on to the handheld-console hybrid that can also slide on its sides just like the JoyCons. Although, it will be a pretty nice surprise for everyone if the default JoyCons themselves are already motion sensitive when launched next year.
