Nintendo Patent – Enhanced Minimap Features

Nintendo applied for a new patent to improve mini-maps in its games. The enhanced mini-map  appears to be primarily focused on the Splatoon series, and appears to be a system that allows players to better understand their position on the map, the location of important items, and points of interest, by utilizing more dynamic and responsive camera movement.
