Written on September 13, 2011 by Avlya Jaie

Comments Off

During its pre-Tokyo Game Show presser this afternoon, Nintendo unveiled the arrival of its newest bizarre circle pad attachment for 3DS.

Aside from its upcoming Misty Pink 3DS, Nintendo also unveiled another interesting announcement during its pre-Tokyo Game Show conference this afternoon in Japan. The Big N’s very own Satoru Iwata discloses their plans of releasing the new 3DS’ bizarre circle pad attachment (also known as 3DS slide pad expansion), which is expected to hit the store shelves of Japan starting December 10 with a price tag of ¥1500 or $19.50.

Nintendo as well revealed some of the titles that will be added on the said attachment, including the Monster Hunter Tri G — which will also be available on Dec. 10. Aside from Monster Hunter, the Biohazard Revelations (Resident Evil: Revelations) will also be present, along with Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D, Ace Combat 3D: Cross Rumble, Dynasty Warriors VS, and Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance.

Unfortunately, the 3DS slide pad expansion will require one AAA battery for use, which means that the pad won’t be carrying the battery power of the 3DS device it’s attached to.
