On February 10, 2015, Nintendo Co., Ltd, filed in the United States a patent application for a "Stationary Game Apparatus, Game Apparatus, Game System, Recording Medium and Speed Control Method". It was published yesterday, on August 20, 2015, and isbased upon and claims the benefit of priority of the prior Japanese Patent Application filed on February 20, 2014. The title of the patent in itself sounds of course not very interesting, but the description and claims are quite peculiar. Additionally it describes a controller with a display screen as well as Speed Control Processing.
And so it begins.
Also, it appears as though that Memory Card might be their primary format this time... meaning, they're going back to 'cartridges' (or, well, modern flash/solid state memory). Either that, or it's just an SD card, and they're going all digital.
I wonder how this would turn out.
