Nintendo is accused of infringing United States patent number 9,126,119, called "Combination computing device and game controller with flexible bridge section". A tablet device is then supposed to slide into the Wikipad allowing the player to play mobile games.
Gamevice is claiming that Nintendo has infringed on its patents.
There are some notable differences between the devices, too. Joy-Cons can also be used separately, while unattached from the Switch. Nintendo has already sold 4.7 million Switch consoles since it first launched back in March.More news: Liverpool owners reiterate no-sale stance on Philippe Coutinho
