On Thursday night, Nintendo revealed more details about its new Switch console, but also highlighted some cool new features in the new Joy-Con (short for joystick controllers), which Nintendo says “make new kinds of gaming possible.”
Check it out:
New innovations we saw during Nintendo's launch event on Thursday include the Joy-Con remotes' strap, which attaches easily to the each remote, and the slide includes an extension for the remote's R and L shoulder buttons.
The new Joy-Con remotes have Nintendo's 'HD Rumble' vibration, which the company claims will be accurate enough to replicate precise sensations, like individual ice cubes in a glass.
'HD Rumble' is reminiscent to the 'Rumble Pak' gamepad accessory for the Nintendo 64 gamepad.
