Nintendo Talks About Switch DLC & Touches On Possibility Of Other Joy-Con Designs

IGN recently got the chance to talk to Shinya Takahashi who is Nintendo’s Entertainment Planning and Development Division general manager. Takahashi talks about how the Nintendo Switch is a good fit for DLC saying that he thinks the Switch is very compatible with additional content.

“I think that titles that you download when you purchase have a very good compatibility with the idea of additional content,” Takahashi told IGN.

Not only that but Takahashi also shows an interest in the idea of other detachable devices other than the Joy-Con controllers:

“This gives us a lot of possibilities that we could consider for the future in terms of what you could attach,” Takahashi said. “I think that that would be a really good time for us to think about some very different colors or designs applied to [Joy-Cons]. That might be interesting.”

  1. Incoming MARIO kart wheel.
    I quite like the idea of transparent joy cons but they need to make em a bit cheaper as there like £70 a set. Maybe £45-£50 and people won’t mind purchasing a few sets


  2. Different Joy-Con designs would be nice. I could use a Joy-Con that isn’t as small as the current ones. So don’t touch upon the possibility of other Joy-Con designs but actually get your asses to work on them! NOW!!!

      1. It hasn’t? Mine only heats up a lot when playing Mario Odyessy. But it doesn’t heat up at all when I play Sonic Mania, so guess it’s like how tablets heat up: certain games have it heat up, others don’t.
