They say that Nintendo's Joy-Cons infringe upon that patent, despite the absence of a flexible bridge between them (found in their WikiPad controller). It claims that the design of the Nintendo Switch's controllers is very similar to one of its products. The Gamevice allows player to control their video games using joysticks and buttons, similar to a traditional gaming experience, rather than using the device's touchscreen.

It's quite possible that the court will crush the claim, since the Switch's controller bridge bears little resemblance to Gamevice's patent. Gamevice wants Nintendo to halt the sales of Switch and is also demanding for damages in cost.
