The Blade Edge's controller is reminiscent of a GameCube-controller. It arches in a boomerang shape with a full center, almost like the Wii U Pro-Controller. It has a small screen display for playing Wii U games on the Virtual Console as well as other practical features. The diamond button pattern returns on the right side of the controller with the (green/yellow/orange/purple) A/B/X/Y formation. Underneath that, there is a yellow C-Nub resembling the 3DS's analog circle as well as a classic analog stick on the opposite side of the controller. Underneath that, there is a horizontal "list" formation of the pause/select/home buttons. A camera is located on the front-facing side, above the screen. Underneath the screen, there is a "Network" set of buttons. There are 4 shoulder buttons, L/CL/R/ZR and a rear touch pad. The controller has a headphone jack, a charging port, and a stylus holder in the right side of it.
The interface of the Blade Edge is currently run on "Edgy 1.2.1", the 12th version of the software. It includes a main menu with customizable themes and grouping folders, a pause menu not too different from the Wii U's, and a host of multitasking-able applications. Edgy is extremely fast with minimal loading times.
