Nintendo 3DS Circle Pad Attachment and Games Unveiled

September 13, 2011


Nintendo has officially unveiled the rumored circle pad add-on for the 3DS.  Here are the list of games that are already being built with the attachment in mind:

– Monster Hunter Tri G
– Resident Evil: Revelations
– Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D
– Ace Combat 3D: Cross Rumble
– Kingdom Hearts 3D
– Dynasty Warriors VS

The 3DS Circle Pad attachment will be released in Japan on December 10 for 1,500 yen (which converts to $19.47 in US dollars).  Expect this attachment to release for about $19.99 in North America by the end of this year or early 2012.  It may not be the most attractive attachment, but it does relieve limitations to developers. What do you guys think?  Sound off in the comments below!

      So far. What about shooting games? Yes, we have the touch screen, but not everyone likes that play style. The Vita will have two sticks, so why not the 3DS?

    The next version of the 3DS is going to be significantly larger. But in reality, I think this is a move Nintendo needed to do and should have done in the first place. This will make it a lot easier for devs to build for both the Vita and 3DS control wise. I just wonder what impact it will have on the devs even seeing the need to take advantage of the stylus/touchpad input that makes the DS lineup unique. Really interested to see how this goes. I will maybe get the next version but the Vita is a first day buy, even with the not so good 3-5 hour battery life.
