Kid Icarus: Uprising bundled with new 3DS stand

Producer Masahiro Sakurai tweets images of new system stand to be included with copies of Pit's long-awaited return; release information uncertain.


This March's Kid Icarus: Uprising will not only support the $20 Circle Pad Pro accessory, but it will also introduce an entirely new peripheral: a 3DS stand.

Kid Icarus: Uprising producer Masahiro Sakurai recently announced via Twitter that the game will come bundled with a new 3DS stand. Sakurai tweeted images of the peripheral (available here) indicating that the accessory will allow gamers to set the 3DS down while playing the title.

Unfortunately, it is unclear as to whether or not the 3DS stand will be available as a stand-alone accessory or if it will be released outside of Japan. As of press time, Nintendo had not responded to GameSpot's request for comment.
