Strange Horseback Wii Periph. discovered, Assie Afraid

The inflatable seat has a pocket for the Wii remote, which is used to sense movement via the accelerometers. Players hold the nunchuck to simulate holding the reins or, as the Nintendo patent describes, “a raised hand for balance as in Bronco riding, a lasso, a sword or other weapon, etc.”

The fact that this patent exists is worrisome, but it's probably just an optional control method for the new Zelda or Nintendo just patenting random possible things related to the Wii Remote to cockblock a pathetic industry who capitalizes on selling you plastic shells. Remember the Teddy Bear and Bicycle attachments/shells that Nintendo patented about a year ago?
