Kid Icarus to have Circle Pad Pro Support

Kid Icarus: Uprising, the next in the series, will return on the 3DS and come accompanied with the new Circle Pad Pro. The game’s director Masahiro Sakurai has said the add-on will allow left-handed gamers to control the action shooter in a way that will be a heck of a lot more comfortable.

Infact, the whole idea behind the use of the Circle Pad Pro is to make gaming easier for those who are left-handed. Sakurai told Official Nintendo Magazine, ‘We’ve made it possible to use the right Circle Pad in place of the left one.’

When work began on Uprising, the Circle Pad Pro wasn’t even an option. Of course, you don’t have to use the peripheral as there hasn’t been much added to the title to accommodate it but it is usable.

Kid Icarus: Uprising is currently due for release in March on the 3DS. The Circle Pad Pro debuts on January 27th, alongside Resident Evil: Revelations.
