Another week, another NX rumor. You might remember the Eurogamer NX leak from a few weeks back that claims the NX will feature two detachable controllers that can be added to or removed from the NX. This time, the folks over at Let’s Play Video Games claim that independent sources have confirmed that the NX controller will feature a combination of Wiimote style motion controls and force feedback like that found on the HTC Vive.

“The force feedback functionality of the controller has been described by one source as “very similar to the Vive controller, in that it alters intensity, pulsing patterns and duration of vibration to mimic the sensation of a range of different movement types. It’s not just one vibration for all situations, there’s a notable difference between the hard abrupt feedback of a sword clash or the softer, longer thud of something like hitting a tennis ball.”

What are your thoughts? Is Nintendo about to double down with motion controls? Do you think this rumor has any merit? Let us know in the comments below.
