Nintendo patent shows Wiimote, Nunchuk crammed into a football

Is Nintendo going to finally make Mario Football? The latest Nintendo patents show that the Big N is certainly thinking about doing something with football. As you can see, there’s a few designs for this football peripheral. One of them allows for both the Wiimote and Nunchuk, while one contains only the Wiimote. The diagram above also shows certain situations where the player can use the football to mimic real-life football situations.

As with all of these patents, there’s no confirmation that this is actually being made. We just know that Nintendo’s at least thinking about it.
