Nintendo patented a Nintendo Wii Remote like remote that was filed in August 10th, 2017 and just appeared live on March 26th, 2019.

Could this be for the Nintendo Switch Mini since rumors say JoyCons aren’t detachable so this will fill in place for those? This could also potentically be for Backwards Compatiblity with Wii titles.

As you can see, there is no Home Button like on the original Wii Remote, nor is there a speaker. The D-Pad is also circular rather plus the +/- buttons are very reminiscent of the Y/X buttons on the GameCube controllers.

What do you think this is for? Leave a comment down below on what you think.
