Nintendo 3DS Cradle Adds Dual-Stick Support
September 7, 2011 | By Mike Rose




Nintendo is set to release a special cradle for its Nintendo 3DS handheld console that will add an extra Circle Pad, allowing for dual-stick control.

Japanese games magazine Famitsu has pictures of the attachment, dubbed the 'Expansion Slide Pad', which fits around the original handheld and adds an extra control stick to the right of the regular A, B, X and Y buttons.

Nintendo confirmed that the device was first-party in a statement to news site Edge, explaining, "We can confirm that Nintendo does plan to release the attachment but that any further announcements on the attachment will be made at some later time by Nintendo."

Numerous games websites speculate that the hardware will be fully unveiled at the upcoming Nintendo 3DS conference, set to be held on September 13.

Famitsu is also reporting that a Nintendo 3DS version of the latest Monster Hunter RPG title is on the way.

As translated by Andriasang, Monster Hunter 3G is an expanded version of Monster Hunter 3 for the Wii, and is set to be released in Japan by the end of the year.
