Nintendo has been granted a new patent
this week, a "remotely controlled mobile device control system" filed back in 2011. In layman's terms, it's a patent that calls for embedding a Wiimote within a remote-controlled toy – a toy which then would interact with a game console.
Nintendo has been fairly quiet on the patent front lately, the latest patent emerging last year: a system to emulate handheld games
on other platforms. Last month, Nintendo lost a lawsuit
over a 3DS patent, awarding $30.2 million in damages
to Tomija Technologies.
