3DS Circle Pad Pro to debut with Resident Evil: Revelations
Nintendo has revealed that the new Circle Pad Pro accessory for the Nintendo 3DS will be released in January 2012, alongside the eagerly awaited Resident Evil: Revelations.
The new add-on for the popular handheld console provides extra control options and will be sold as part of a bundle with Capcom's horror title, while both the game and accessory will also be available separately.
Attaching to the underside of the 3DS, the cradle-like device adds a second analogue control pad and additional shoulder buttons, which will be used by certain games to provide more complex and precise controls.
In Resident Evil: Revelations, it will allow players to control the action as they would in a home console Resident Evil title, making it easier to take down the vicious monsters they will face.
The game will also offer a range of control schemes that utilise the native 3DS buttons and Touch Screen in innovative ways.
Circle Pad Pro support will also be included in several forthcoming 3DS titles, including Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D.
