U.S. Investigating Nintendo for Alleged Switch Patent Infringement

U.S. Investigating Nintendo for Alleged Switch Patent Infringement

2018-05-02

Nintendo is under investigation by the U.S. International Trade Commission for possible patent infringement, the federal agency said on Tuesday.

Mobile gaming accessory maker Gamevice claims Nintendo’s new Switch console infringes on its patents for attachable handheld controllers. The Gamevice connects to an iOS or Android device and allows gamers to play on their smartphones or tablets using traditional analog joysticks and buttons instead of a touchscreen. While it was designed for a variety of devices, the Switch’s Joy-Con controllers were made to work exclusively with the hybrid console.
