Nintendo New Console Called ‘Nintendo Feel’?

News has just leaked from a Swedish Gaming Publication site, that Nintendo’s next home console will be called ‘Feel’. Speculation has been surrounding the new console, and names have just been one talking point, Wii2 and codename ‘Project Café’. The Swedish site, Loading, apparently has sources close to Nintendo. Here is what was revealed on the website today:

After Touch Will Feel
We have already heard that Nintendo will develop a controller with built-in screen. Since the information is leaked, it has drawn parallels to both Apple iPad and how Nintendo used the Game Boy Advance hand control to a few Gamecube games. But the new screen controller has another dimension – convey the sense of touch. Our source using the working title of Nintendo Feel .

Haptic technology is a form of tactile feedback Used To Simulate the experience of Different objects best moments on screen. The player cannabis move their fingertips across a surface and Clearly Feel the Difference Between Soft, smooth or rugged texture. Electronic companies across the World Have Been Conducting research in this field for years. It’s Been rumored that Apple is close to patenting a similar technology, and we’ve seen the Toshiba demonstration of ‘New Sensation UI Solution’ That Applies a thin film over a screen in order to Achieve a haptic effect. In Nintendo’s case, this is a natural progression of Both the Nintendo DS touch screen & the Wii technology.

And sure, anyone can imagine what the feeling of a furry coat against the fingertips would make for Nintendogs. One need not be especially familiar with The Legend of Zelda for the understanding of the fantastic in order to draw patterns in the sand, feel the coolness from the river, burn on lava or perceiving structures of the bark of an old tree.

But at the same time, Nintendo Feel an experience you will not want to explain in words, but just put in the hands of the player. Which probably explains why Nintendo chose to have playable demos at E3, with in June, although the finished console not being launched until 2012.

    Just realised something…

    Iwata mentioned something (that I wrote in that article) about Nintendo thinking it was best for people to experience it at E3 rather than Nintendo announcing any details. This would be the kind of thing that would be best experienced rather than described.


  2. This is just amazing. First reaction would be, No Way!! But then I do remember thinking that before Wii’s release. So it makes anything possible. And yeah, it would go well with Nintendo’s insistence of having playable demos for E3. Nintendo is preparing another revolution.
