Following a listing of the Nintendo Switch’s accessories and their price points on the website of a Norwegian retailer, it appears that there’s even more prepped for the Nintendo Switch launch in March.
Aside from system cases, clean and protect kits, and power adapters that we reported earlier, one of the accessories includes a controller made by Hori — a well known Japan-based accessory manufacturer. It resembles the Wii U Pro controller with one interesting addition — a record button, the icon for it is what you’d find on a VCR or recording software. Images of this, along with other accessories have been posted on popular gaming forum, NeoGAF.
This could imply that the Nintendo Switch may have some form of gameplay recording feature. An interesting move for a variety of reasons.
For one, Nintendo’s stance on user-generated content has been seen as avaricious by many. Secondly, it looks like it’s implemented in a fashion similar to how Sony designed the DualShock 4 with its Share button. Amusing as Nintendo is usually known for putting its own spin on industry-accepted trends.
Nonetheless, we should know more about this and other Nintendo Switch features when Nintendo lifts the lid on its price, features, and games later this week.
In the run up to that, we've pieced together everything you need to know about the Nintendo Switch prior to release in the debut of our new podcast, Transition.
