Could potentially be some kind of multiplayer game... As with many patents nothing may come of it, but I'm certainly interested in what they're thinking here :D



i have enough with one screen

That literally made me laugh out loud.



Could be for a new party game. 1-2-Switch sold so well and probably made so much profit they'd be crazy not to make another one in the same vein.

But you're not allowed to say that out loud around here. Forum dwellers hate 1-2 Switch.



Gameplay > Graphics

Substance > Style

Art Direction > Realism

yes this is probably just to patent an idea they had. Likely never to see the light of day. At most, if it can be done with existing switch hardware, it'd just be utilized for a party game. No real use case beyond that.



As interesting as it seems, it looks very complicated to do in real life.

But maybe it has nothing to do with consoles and is come kind of booth or arcade stand for that amusement park they're building with Universal Studios.



Please excuse my bad English.

It could potentially solve the lack of dualscreen, but few people would buy a new system (or even a new version) for VC.

I think a second screen app akin to the Playstation app would be better suited for that.  Not ideal, but at least everyone would have it.

 

This looks like it would be gimmicky at best as an add on, and a complicated cash grab at best for VC.  Though final products often differ greatly from the original patent, so we will see.
