3DS Circle Pad Pro add-on may also be an alternative
Nintendo have announced that they will be releasing a stand alongside Kid Icarus: Uprising to make controlling the game easier. The special boxed set was revelaed on Masahiro Sakurai’s Twitter earlier this morning. Images of the stand can be found on Andriasang.
Also mentioned on Andriasang to be included alongside the stand will be 6 AR cards. What those cards include is not mentioned, but with the release date fast approaching more info is sure to surface.
It has also been announced that Kid Icarus will be making use of the 3DS Circle Pad Pro; the hardware add-on for an extra joystick. Some concern had been brought up about the game’s controls being difficult to use by some which may be the reason for the stands development. With the inclusion of support for the 3DS Circle Pad Pro, which eliminates the need to use the touch screen, the controls should see improvement.
Kid Icarus: Uprising is scheduled for release on March 22 in Japan and March 23 in North America. No final date has been scheduled for the game’s release in Europe except for March 2012.
