Kid Icarus Uprising director Masahiro Sakurai has confirmed that the title will support the Circle Pad Pro attachment.
Sakurai said that Circle Pad Pro support would aid left-handed gamers:
“The way we are using the Circle Pad Pro in the game is to provide support for left-handed gamers.
“We’ve made it possible to use the right Circle Pad in place of the left one.”
The additional Circle Pad means that left-handed gamers will be able to switch the controls so that they can use the stylus with their left hand.
Having left-handed friends who have previously struggled with games such as Metroid Prime Hunters due to unfriendly, left-handed controls, it’s good news that there’s an option to better their gaming experience in Kid Icarus Uprising. Shame it’s gonna cost them, though…
