if you take a look under the d-pad, theres a square button. what could be its utility about you?
also, if you take a close look, there are two green light on the pad with three hole under each. iguess they indicate power left in the battery of the joy-cons
Maybe a clone home/pause/menu button when the its mini shared split screen version?
Maybe one's start and the other's select.
start select no longer exist, they now are +&-
button on the right is home
The lights act the same way as on the wiimote, they display what player the controllers are set to
At least that's my assumption
maybe yeah, that would make sense too

wait, but then, why two set of light?
It appears that each half can be used as a separate player controller, though this doesn't explain why the lights are on the middle and not the controller themselves.
Also, the design of the controller seems to be heavily focused on rotational symmetry, so that could be the only reason.
Doesn't even look like a button if you look at it's depth compared to the home button, perhaps just where the Amiibo scanner is?
Not nearly big enough for Amiibo scanner, it's a button.
All I meant is that it is an indication of where it is, if it's not "nearly big enough", then my point is still proven scrub :3
lol, the square on the wii u game pad is not that big either
I remember the leaks earlier saying that the "NX" at the time had a share button - perhaps this is it?
I think that is probably it. Since they are both independent they may need a way to tell what battery level they are at. It could also be a pause start button.
1. A share button that maybe would post to Miiverse or some other platform.
2. A button that does a cool feature we haven't heard of yet.
3. A button that is just there so games can use it.
They share the exact same functionality.
Share/screenshot button. And when the joycons are disconnected and separated then it's just an all purpose button i assume. Seems most likeliest anyway.
since it sits opposite of the "home" button, I'd imagine it performs an OS function like sharing, or some other shortcut to a thingi they haven't revealed. since it appears to be circular, maybe the thingi is going to have a circular visual/logo maybeh?
It's probably not amiibo though, as a button for amiibo wouldn't make sense. I wonder if amiibo support will be integrated (put it over the switch logo) or will be a usb plugin, like with the older 3ds.
I assume the Amiibo spot is the middle of the controller.
