This is the packaging for the 3DS slide pad add-on

I’m kind of, sort of, maybe warming up to the idea of having one of these attached to my 3DS, but I’m still hurt that Nintendo didn’t include it in it’s initial design. Perhaps I will play the “wait and see” game to find out if the imminent redesign will have double analog support built in.

Nevertheless, here is how the Japanese packaging will look when the expansion launches alongside Monster Hunter Tri-G this December in Japan. As for an American release for either of the two items, well, don’t ask cause neither Nintendo nor Capcom are talking.

Anyone planning on picking up a second slide pad for their 3DS?
