    Well that's great. Should be a nice addition for when I'm playing at home.

    Normally, I never use add-ons for anything, but I may use this one when I'm home and playing at my desk.

    Also, normally Nintendo's solutions to their problems is to make an unnecessary peripheral, but I actually like this one.

    What a load of shit. Basically admitting the game design is flawed so cannot be played 'normally'. Can understand why, those stylus control schemes are difficult at the best of times, and simply won't work with the narrow 3d field.

    Chucking some plastic tat in to make the game playable is NOT a good deal.

    Quote from another site hit the mark -
    Because nothing says 'portable gaming' like a stand...​

    What an embarrassing mess though. Nintendo really aren't covering themselves in glory with the 3d thing by creating games that need a stand. Really shouldn't release this game like this IMO, more harm than good.

    Well the plastic the holds your 3DS looks very short and might end up making your 3DS fall.
    So it doesn't really look kinda good now to actually use it.

    When that's the comparison, you just KNOW somethings gone wrong!

    All are posts in this thread are really annoying you know?
    Have you tried the game before?
    I'm left handed and I tried the game back when they were doing those 3DS testing stands, the controls were pretty amazing and well done, YOU might not like those controls, but they are good controls, seeing as I could play it just fine and I'm a lefty.
    The 3D in the games was pretty decent, and I'm sure they improved it seeing as it was still in development back then, if YOU don't like the game, there's no need to go around saying that Nintendo is trying to fix a flaw in the game when the game hasn't even been released it. That stand seems pretty interesting to me, when using a 3DS at home, that thing will definitely be really useful for playing most games in a comfortable way.

    Fair enough, I'm not convinced though I'm afraid. Been looking forward to this game, but my heart sank when I saw it came with this free. Thinking about it, play this 'freehand' with stylus controls there's surely going be some difficulty holding still and maintaining 3d comfortably and for extended periods. Why else a stand? They must recognise this is an issue else why give stuff away. Also remember you played it on a stand, so I'd expect it to work well.

    Maybe I'm being pessimistic. I suppose some people thought 'great' when they found out they got a freebie. My reaction was very much 'oh no what have they done'.

    It was a stand, but the console was only being held by it, it had a cord that allowed you to play with it in your hands normally, so I didn't play the game while the console was being held, it was in my hands while I played it, also, not always a game coming with an extra means that the game is bad, it's a pretty common thing that Nintendo has always done.
