Nintendo Switch Pro Controller Grip Patent

Nintendo Co., Ltd. have applied for a new “Game controller” patent (特開2019-181224) in Japan. The patent aims to enhance operability of a game controller. The patent uses a controller (the images used show a Nintendo Switch Pro Controller) with connected front and rear housing body parts plus gripping parts on the left and right side. The housing body is covered with grip portions which cover the entire grip part, so it is easy for the user to feel when they grip the grip portion, and thus operability is improved. Select images used in the application added below. Thanks to J-PlatPat.
