Nintendo accused of copyright theft over Switch controller design

Nintendo’s handheld tablet-esque console, the Switch, is now the subject of a lawsuit that claims that certain elements of the design are a little too close to a concept patented by gaming accessory manufacturer, Gamevice.

In particular, the lawsuit isn’t happy with how closely the concepts of the Switch mimic that of Gamevice’s own Wikipad – an Android tablet that loosely resembles the layout of the Switch – as well the company’s eponymous gaming peripherals that are very similar to the Joy-Con, Switch’s detachable controllers, except they operate on your Apple or Android smart device.
