    The "leaker" confirmed the hoax himself, check the video for details on how it was done.



    Someone claims Nintendo of Europe also confirmed the photos were a fake.

    P.S. -- I won't say "I told you so" ;)

    Well, it was almost obviously so - as much as Nintendo has a hardon for weird and uncomfortable controllers, it'd be too bad even for them.

    i do worry for GBA temp when this is deemed frontpage news worthy above any mod/hacking work done by its own members.... :consider me more and more disillusioned with this place..

    I'm more interested in what the NX controller actually looks like. The Editor in Chief of gameinformer told everyone that his sources had claimed the NX controller has no face buttons on social media in response to the leaks.

    If it isn't this design but has no face buttons what is it? :huh:

    I'm probably the only one on the interwebs who really liked the controller lol. Well at least the design. Play style maybe not so much.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    how about the second photo?

    the first photo looked fake as hell, the displayed picture on the screen was totally wrong...

    but the second one made me think it was legit, it looked real..

    Now that everyone believes it's fake, time for Ninty to patent it and produce it for real.

    Or come up with an even more ridiculous controller.
