This could be our first glimpse at the Nintendo NX controller

Nintendo won't unveil the NX console for a couple of months, but a leaked image may show us what the controller will look like.

An image has appeared online that claims to be of the upcoming Nintendo NX controller.

The picture of the controller was posted on Reddit, though Dual Pixels is claiming that is has an exclusive source too. The controller will apparently feature an embedded screen, but won't have physical buttons.

This mirrors what the 2015 patent indicated. It described an "oval controller with two analogue sticks and shoulder buttons, as well as a speaker." It also said that the "whole face of the device is a touch enabled display screen, allowing for custom buttons to be displayed along with animated graphics."

Nintendo may announce the NX console in the coming months, and it's thought that it could be out as early as this holiday season.
