The Rayman Legends trailer for Wii U was leaked today. Apart from the connection cable, theres another thing different from what we saw at E3...

As you may know, the Rayman Legends trailer for Wii U was leaked today (http://www.maxconsole.com/cgi-bin/maxconsole/rknewz.pl?function=detail&id=RKLS0000007468&cat=WII). New Wii U features were shared, but there's something different about the controller that wasn't shown at last year E3.



For context, here's the back of the Wii U's tablet controller, as seen at last year's E3.

Now here it is again, but as seen in the leaked trailer:

Now, forget about the wire sticking out from the controller, as it could be used for recharging or is just part of the pre-release debug units. This is the different part:

What it could be? A rear camera for augmented-reality (AR) capabilities, or just an IR sensor similar to the one inside the Wii Remote?

What do you think that could be?
