However, Nintendo blurred out the gamepad design in the video, which you can see below at 00:08.
As you can see, even though the gamepad is blurred, the shape is significantly different to that of the original gamepad design. You can see a side by side comparison below.
Nintendo has yet to make a statement on this story; but the fact that they blurred out the gamepad, and nothing else, does make it seem suspicious.
I do think that this is a “new gamepad redesign” but I think Nintendo is waiting until E3 to announce it. I mean, why else would they blur out only the gamepad?
