Nightmare controller confirmed for Wii successor console

3:00 PM on 06.04.2011 // Tyler Jones

The rumors are true, according to Nikkei. The controller for Nintendo's upcoming home console will indeed have a six inch touch screen, leaving me scratching my head as to exactly how it will be incorporated into anything at all. It will also have a camera and rechargeable battery, and can even be taken on the go as a portable system.

Seriously, Nintendo? A new DS every single year wasn't enough for your portable gaming machinations?

You can color me quite the skeptic, though I must remind myself that I was equally skeptical of my now-beloved DS system. Maybe if they use the controller screen for menus or status screens like the the DS Castlevania games did it could even work.
