Last week, we told you about a few mysterious Nintendo filings with the FCC. The filing was almost entirely barren of details because of a confidentiality request Nintendo filed alongside it. Still, the listing did reveal that the device in question may be a new game controller. Now, we all know when the confidentiality request will be lifted thereon controller, which tells us when it’s likely to be revealed.
As Eurogamer reports, that FCC listing has been updated to point out that full details about the device in question will be released on September 24th, which is that this Friday. It’s then that the FCC listing will presumably be updated with details about the controller’s functionality alongside diagrams depicting the controller’s design.
Earlier today, Nintendo announced that it’d be hosting a replacement Nintendo Direct presentation tomorrow – at some point before the essential details related to that FCC listing are set to travel public. Put two and two together, and it seems that we’re getting to get a controller to reveal additionally to all or any of the games which will bring on tap during tomorrow’s Direct.
The big question now’s what this controller are going to be used for. Another standard Switch controller will be used as an alternate to the Joy-Cons and, therefore, the Switch Pro controller. However, we’ve also heard rumors lately which claim that Nintendo will soon be adding Game Boy and Game Boy Color games to Nintendo Switch Online. If Nintendo announces that tomorrow, then this controller could go hand-in-hand with those games.
