Satoru Iwata, president of Nintendo, has just this moment finished delivering his TGS speech. And, amongst promises of an increase in Game Boy Micro shipments for Japan, a nod towards Mario's birthday week (as previously covered here) and Iwata-san being throughly beatific about the success of Nintendogs, there was also an unveiling of the one thing we all wanted to see.
So, here goes: the Revolution's controller will look like a futuristic television remote, with a glossy white design, not unlike an iPod. Hopefully finger marks won't be as prominent. The controller will be held in one hand, with attachments in another. Iwata showed an analog stick attachment, which acts like a mouse in real-space 3D.
Oh, and the first software demos of Revolution? Sega Bass Fishing and a cooking game. Yup. But we all know you want to see it, so scroll down, and all will be revealed...
So just how does this crazy piece of kit work? The remote control - with minimal buttons and a trigger on its underside, works a bit like a light gun - is a pointer. On top of that, it responds to movements to each side. Interesting. Oh, it has force feedback, too.
Then there's the nunchuck, as Miyamoto quaintly puts it. It's basically an analog stick and a trigger. There's the possibility of other attachments, too.
It's all quite different to what anyone was expecting - but will developers be able to adapt their conventional games to it? Time will tell...
In the mean time, here is a video that will give you a better idea how the whole things works.
