Nintendo is being used over the design of the Switch's detachable controllers

Nintendo Switch Joy Con Controllers Nintendo Is Getting Sued over the Switch's Design, Apparently

According to Gamevice's claims, the Nintendo Switch Joy-Con controller infringes on a patent it owns.

Handheld console developer Gamevice has a bone to pick with Nintendo over its recently released console, The Nintendo Switch, going so far as to file a lawsuit against the company, alleging it ripped off its machine.

Nintendo's Switch gaming system has two Joy-Con controllers that can be attached and detached from a mobile screen. Of course, this patent's technology is not in any of the company's products and was issued in September 2015, whereas development for the Nintendo Switch started prior to that.

Gamevice claims that Nintendo's alleged infringement "has caused, and is continuing to cause, damage and irreparable injury to Gamevice, and Gamevice will continue to suffer damage and irreparable injury unless and until that infringement is enjoined by this Court". These features are absent from the Wikipad. It filed the lawsuit on August 9th. There are significant differences between the two devices while Switch is versatile when it comes to portable gaming and using the console as a home hybrid device like PlayStations, Wikipad couldn't get the success it initially promised to achieve over time. In contrast, the Wikipad controllers clip on. The Joy-Cons are the primary controllers for the Switch and a pair of them come included with each Switch console. With that being said, Nintendo has been working on controller ideas since at least 2012 when they were designing the concept for the Wii U. You can check this out below. The Wikipad's controller also serves as a dock for the device, while the Switch relies on a separate dock that charges both the console and controllers. Nintendo's first-party titles such as the Legend of Zelda and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe have helped boost Switch sales. Nintendo lost the battle in 2013, and was required to pay Tomita $30.2 million in damages.
