Resident Evil Revelations to be bundled with Circle Pad Pro…In Europe

Infendo
There is nothing I would like more than to have more games to play on my 3DS. I have had one heck of a time recently with Super Mario 3D Land as it has showed me just how much fun the little 3D machine really is. Ever since I got my hands on the demo of Resident Evil Revelations back in June, I have been clamoring to get my hands on a retail copy of the game, and it looks like it may come with a little something extra when it releases in February.

It has been announced that when Resident Evil Revelations releases in Europe, there will be a version that contains a bundle that includes a Circle Pad Pro. Although much negativity has been said about the Circle Pad Pro, yes, even here on Infendo, it will interesting to see how the accessory is supported by Nintendo and third parties alike. If it starts becoming commonly supported by developers, perhaps Nintendo will make the inevitable 3DS redesign include a second slide pad so everyone can get in on the dual analog goodness.

I admit that I am down on the Circle Pad Pro accessory because it is just that, and accessory. Nintendo has shown time and time again that even they are reluctant to support many of their peripherals (Wii Speak, Balance Board, Zapper), so call me a cynic, but I just not ready to support Circle Pad Pro. Not yet.

What are your thoughts on the device? Do you want one? Will you buy a bundle if one is released alongside a game? Let us know!
