Nintendo faces lawsuit over Switch design

NINTENDONintendo Switch is back in stock at Argos today available now at hundreds of stores
Accessory maker Gamesvice recently began legal proceedings against the company, filing a lawsuit against Nintendo that alleges the Switch's removable Joy-Con controllers violate a patent acquired by the comparatively diminutive firm when it was developing the Wikipad. The tablet portion of the Switch is also in question since Gamevice claims that Nintendo's solution for attaching the Joy-Con is close to its device with a "flexible bridge section", Engadget has learned.
Gamevice stated to Engadget that they have no comment on the case at this time and Nintendo have yet to give comment. There are two analogue sticks, a D-Pad and four action buttons with a display in the middle but that's really the extent of it. A tablet device is then supposed to slide into the Wikipad allowing the player to play mobile games. The detachable controllers are the focus of Gamevice's claim. The company also takes issue with the similarities between the Switch's detachable Joy-Cons and the eponymous peripherals it sells for phones and tablets.
It has called for Switch sales to be halted and has asked the court for damages.
There are some notable differences between the devices, too.
The Nintendo Switch will also be getting more games from publisher/developer Capcom. The game is also headed to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One later this month on August 29. Nintendo predicted that it would be able to sell 10 million units of the Switch by the end of its fiscal year 2018.
Gamevice's Wikipad (pictured below) is the device that the Switch supposedly uses the patents from.
