Nintendo of Japan has confirmed on its 3DS support page that Super Smash Bros. for 3DS will not support the Circle Pad Pro attachment for the current 3DS and 3DS XL handhelds.
Not supporting the circle pad pro makes no sense
Its really a disappointment. They really confuse me at times. Its as if they are stuck in the past with their attitudes.
Nintendo is all about tradition. The Gameboy went through the same type of upgrades as the DS.
It's incentive to buy the new one.
Well least they called it a button, most sites keep saying "second analogue stick" lol
People comparing it to the C-stick is a lot worse imo.
Isn't it intended to perform the same function as the C-stick?
But, Th4Freak, it's more or less the same thing as the C-stick. A tiny analog input that resembles a button.
They should just call it a nub.
Another stupid move by nintendo
I love Nintendo, but damn they've made some really weird decisions lately
That c-button/nub is in such an awkward looking place. I fear I may accidentally press the other face buttons as I reach for it with my thumb.
I don't know what this nub is. Looks utterly awkward. Why not just add a second thumb slider?
now imagine using the dpad on the left and the nub on the right at the same time.
Thanks for making my 3ds obsolete, so quickly. I will probably start buying their hardware at the end of the cycle moving forward. Ridiculous.
So that is a button, prior to the announcement, people were saying it was another mini slider.
its a nipple.
nice move nintendo. sell a console and a second analog attachment and then make that attachment obsolete because of no apparent reason. i just dont get it at all.
This is not really new. Look at the DSi, the GBA SP, etc. Unfortunately Nintendo feels too secure to care about their upset current 3DS owners. I will upgrade my 3DS to this however.
i was talking more in line with why the second analog attachment not supported. is it more to do with the new nub this more like a directional pad instead of analog? meaning is there only 8 directions which clicks into place and no inbetween?
It might help to change the name of the article to Super Smash Bros 3DS Game will support the new 3ds C Button. Some people might get confused since a Limited Edition Smash Bros 3DS (Hardware) is coming out and doesn't have the C-Buttons or Z triggers.
