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. Left Joycon wuth a D-Pad. Right Joycon with the buttons and joystick switched. GameCube styled Joycons with analog ZR and ZL buttons for GameCube Virtual Console. And of course gold Joycons.

  2. 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

  3. I would like to see different types of Joy cons. That is a great idea for those who don’t like the current Joy cons (I like them by the way).

  4. 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. I’ve played with my switch for hours a day (so naturally it got heated) but hasn’t warped as far as I can tell

      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.
