Nintendo Teases New Motion Controller Accessories for Switch

Posted on September 9, 2019 by Mehedi Hassan in Games with 1 Comment

Nintendo is teasing a weird new experience for the Switch. It is yet to reveal actual details on this new experience, but it’s shared a video showing off how the new controllers could be used by Switch owners. And it’s pretty…uh, wild.

Nintendo’s new experience seems to be focused on fitness. You will be able to attach the device’s Joy-Con controllers to some straps and other accessories that will let you do a bunch of workouts in your home. From the video, it seems like these accessories are capable of tracking jumps, running, a lot of ab workouts, and more.

Nintendo isn’t revealing any details on this new experience just yet, including how much it will cost. The company is expected to reveal more details on September 12, so for now, this is all we have. Nintendo has obviously tried this with products like Wii Fit, so this is nothing new. The company’s also known to experiment quite a bit with the Switch’s Joy-Con controllers, by the way.

    Nintendo doing Nintendo things once again. I think this fad has faded, but I dont know.

    Highly disappointed that the newer models of the Switch still dont have headphone bluetooth support.

    I would buy another one just for that.
