Kid Icarus: Uprising Will Ship With A Nintendo 3DS Stand In Japan


Kid Icarus: Uprising director, Masahiro Sakurai, showed an interesting Nintendo 3DS peripheral off today, revealing it in a most un-Nintendo-like fashion via a casual tweet. Take a look:



That’s a stand for the Nintendo 3DS, and it’ll come bundled with Kid Icarus: Uprising in Japan. Sakurai says that it’ll help you keep the system steady while playing the game.


Kid Icarus: Uprising will be released in Japan on March 22nd. The game will be compatible with the Circle Pad Pro attachment, using it to support left-handed players better, by allowing them to move Pit with the right analog pad and use the stylus with their left hand.
