The Switch controllers bring back an emphasis on motion controls.
It turned out Nintendo were hiding some features for the Nintendo Switch Joycons after all- today in the Switch conference, they spent an excruciating amount of time going through each feature the Joycon has, in a far too cringe inducing manner.
You can check out the full list below- but it seems as though the controllers are actually pretty versatile. They have a lot of features that should give them the same kind of casual appeal as the Wii Remotes, they have power user features, they enable immediate local multiplayer, and it looks like they are debuting at least a few new technologies.
That, plus they look cool. Pity they are so small. The Nintendo Switch launches on March 3 worldwide, for $300.
