Second Analog Stick For 3DS Confirmed

We’ve been hearing a lot of rumors about a possible second analog stick coming to the 3DS. At their recent 3DS-centric press conference, Nintendo did indeed confirm its existence. Thankfully the company isn’t churning out yet another handheld console, but is instead offering an add-on accessory that will add the functionality to existing hardware.

So how much is the latest accessory going to set you back? A surprisingly modest sum of 1500 yen (they didn’t announce a US price, but that would translate into around $20) is all that it will fetch. The add-on will need some extra juice to operate, but that will be satisfied with just a single AAA. Honestly, with the extra bulk that it adds, I’ll be very surprised if we don’t see a 3rd party offer one that includes a battery pack for your 3DS.

The release date is slated for December 10 in Japan, however, none was announced for any other markets. As for titles that will take advantage of the extra stick, we currently know Monster Hunter 3G, Resident Evil Revelations, Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater 3D, Ace Combat 3D Cross Rumble, Dynasty Warriors Vs and Kingdom Hearts 3D are on the list.
