Nintendo has renewed its contract with Immersion, the company that supplies the tech for the Joy-Con we know and love today. The Joy-Con HD Rumble feature is powered by the haptic feedback technology produced by Immersion. This feature was heavily marketed when Nintendo Switch was first revealed. Despite all the marketing, not many games have used this feature to its full extent. In fact, even Nintendo itself has not applied it to games very often.

Despite the lack of use, renewing the agreement with Immersion means Nintendo can continue to use the haptic technology, including for later hardware projects like the so-called Switch 2. This renewal timing has people conspiring about that much-debated next Nintendo console and whether it will also use Joy-Con, and if not Joy-Con, then a form of controller that will use the haptic technology.

What’s your theory? Let us know down below.
