Nintendo has revealed on their Japanese website that the controller will take a long time to recharge, about 2.5 hours to be precise. Not only that, the battery will only last for about 3-5 hours before it needs another charge. It can be recharged through the console via  a USB cord, so you won’t have to worry about changing batteries mid-game. Considering that the controller has a friggin’ touch screen in it, that would sort of make sense. Hopefully, Nintendo will at least provide a cord long enough to recharge the controller while playing across the room.
