An interesting patent has just been unearthed by some gaming enthusiasts, the patent was filled on March 10, 2006 and it shows pretty clearly what we now know as the ‘Wii Remote’, and it being used an accessory for the GameCube with a Wavebird-esque type adapter to use it with. There’s a lot of jargon in the patent but the images seem to be the more interesting part, check them out below.

The images pretty much speak for themselves, although it’s nice to see a cheap mock up of Mario playing Tennis, perhaps a very early build of Mario Power Tennis?

    Interesting. I guess holding off till the Wii was a smart move to revamp sales and continue great revenue and profits.
