The leaked images of the Nintendo NX controller were fake

50 sec read

In case you haven’t been keeping up with this week’s batch of gaming rumors, images of the controller for Nintendo’s next console, known as the Nintendo NX, were leaked through Reddit, first by a user named Idriss2Dev, and then later by a user named perkele37. As with all leaks and rumors, a lot of people were pretty skeptical, especially since not even Nintendo could design a controller that horrendous looking, and their skepticism was well-founded. The original leaker confirmed that the images were fake in a video posted on Thursday.

For days, gamers have been caught up in the hype of Nintendo’s next-generation console, codenamed the “Nintendo NX,” particularly as several purported shots of its controller have made the rounds of popular forums. But if you wanted to really believe, prepare for your heart to get broken. One of the posts that circulated thoroughly on Reddit one week ago was proven fake by the user who posted it, /u/Idriss2Dev. A detailed video of the painstaking 3D rendering shows how the controller appeared out of thin air. It’s not common for these leaks to be falsified and in turn set off flags: many users thought the controller was fake after it was determined the controller had an image from an Unreal demo photoshopped directly onto it. Other photos haven’t been debunked, but be warned: never trust what the Internet tells you.
