It has been speculated this controller will be a replica of the N64 one. As stated by Wccftech, the schematics of the device reveals two rectangles, one of which includes a long, thin label at the top of the controller. This is actually a prominent feature on the N64 controller.

Earlier this month, an insider also claimed that the Japanese company is planning to make N64 games playable on the Switch. Taken into account, it seems likely that Nintendo's device could be a reincarnation of the classic console's one. But, we'll keep you informed if this becomes official.
