While Nintendo thought they were out of the woods with a controller patent tied to the Wii, Wii U and Switch, a U.S. appeals court has reversed and remanded that decision, sending the Big N back to court to try the entire case over again.

The original case started when Genuine Enabling Tech claimed that Nintendo infringed on their patent for a data-transmission patent. The original ruling found Nintendo to be in the clear, but the appeal stated that Genuine’s patent was misconstrued in the original hearing, and Nintendo’s expert testimony was weighted too heavily by the district court.

Long story short, the controller patent dispute will now restart. We’ll keep tabs on the situation and see which way the court rules this time around.
