    Nunchaku Revolution Controller Feature Revealed

    April 25, 2006

    by: Phillip Levin

    CONFIRMED: Sources close to Nintendo confirm for AMN that the rumors are true. Details inside.

    Last week, a rumor hit the net claiming that the Nintendo Revolution’s nunchaku controller features a built-in acellerometer allowing it to sense it being tilted left or right, or being moved up, down, left, right and in a number of other directions as well.


    Today, AMN has confirmed through a developer incredibly close to Nintendo that this rumor is in fact true. The nunchaku peripheral does feature this secondary function. However, we were also told that the nunchaku controller does not feature the same pointing and motion sensing abilities that allow the Revolution free-hand controller to be used like a “pointer” or “wand.”

    One example we’ve come up to describe how this function will be useful in future software involves a first-person shooter, in which you use the free-hand controller to look around and aim, while you use the nunchaku controllers analog stick to move around and strafe. Most importantly, you’d be able to tilt the nunchaku controller to the left or right to reload your weapon.

    More intriguing than all this, perhaps, our source told us that this “feature” of the nunchaku controller has been in their development kits since they first received them over six months ago. This raises the question, of course, is this the second big secret function of the Revolution controller? It could be. However, it’s odd that developers have had access to the feature and information all along, without ever being told to keep the information under wraps.

    Nintendo Revolution will be in full playable form during the Electronic Entertainment Expo., which kicks off May 9, 2006 with Nintendo’s annual press briefing. AMN will be on hand at the event with full coverage.

    Gyro control in one hand and mouse control in the other...thats hot. It can effectively bring both hands into the action, if need be. No wonder they don't need any buttons- who needs em when you have analog control via hand gestures?

    This would make some games even easier to play. If, like me, you didn't buy the whole "hold the controller like a paper airplane and play flying games" argument, gyroscopic function in one hand would let you "steer" the plane with hand movements. Also makes for a handy dodge function in any action game.

    and this is for only one of the controller's attachments...

    Interesting. I hope this is not the final secret though, I'm just expecting something else. And as the article states,if this was the final secret then developers would know that this information should be kept under wraps.

    Still, it's interesting.

      This news was not exactly a secret so I think Nintendo still has something to reveal at E3. But it's definitely good to know that the Nanchaku attachment brings some really neat gameplay dynamics to the table and is not just a simple thumb-stick attachment. But most people who know about 3D mapping would already realize theotion sensing capabilities the Rev has. So there must be another secret.

        I expect TONS of attachments for the Revolution controller down the road, the sky's the limit.
