    If the Circle Pad Pro didn't curb your need for 3DS plastic add-ons; maybe this will! Project Sora lead and developer of Kid Icarus: Uprising announced on Twitter that the collapsible stand would be bundled exclusively with Kid Icarus: Uprising when the game hits store shelves in Japan this March.

    The 3DS cradling contraption shown above will take the weight of the 3DS out of your hands to make playing stylus and slide pad controlled games easier to play. The stand doesn't seem to have any extra features such as charging, however it does look like its not designed in a way that would prevent other consoles from being used on it, such as the original DS if you wanted to.

    There has currently been no word on whether the add-on will also reach European or American shores, but stay tuned for more info.

    This could be useful for a lot of games that go out of '3D focus' during play.

    Or it could be useful for watching or recording movies. Many possible uses. :)

    What a weird idea...guess it might help with hand cramps? and AR card reading - so the 3DS is steady.

    Doesn't this work counter-productive? The 3DS has motion controls, a stand will only limit the directions you can turn your 3ds. Added to the fact that this is a HANDheld, I find a stand for it not fitting at all. This comes to mind thinking of stands for "handhelds":

    ^And we all know how that one ended up

    Note: I'm not saying the 3ds will fail because of this, I just don't see the point of this peripheral.

    I kinda like it more than the charging cradle.

    Not sure I will use it with the game, but if it comes, I'll certainly use it to put my 3DS when I don't use it.

    This game is so far the only game which uses the peripheral because it requires precisive aiming.

    This game uses motion controls? Well, that's dumb. It doesn't? Oh okay.

    -A 2nd CC
    -four shoulder buttons
    -better battery
    -better 3D screen
    -wheel
    -and a stand!

    :P

    Don't include any of that and people will go F**K YOU NINTENDO.

    But seriously, apart from this game, I doubt any other game uses the stand.

    edit: 3,000 posts :P

    I was talking in general. The stand isn't required to play this game, and you can easily use it for other games. If you look at it from that perspective, the peripheral makes no sense. I also think that this stand will be sold retail, as that is the case with generic peripherals like these. It can be used with any game, so you can count on it that there will be people buying it. Also, I do not know if Kid Icarus has motion controls, like I said before, my arguments were made from a more general standpoint where you use it only a daily basis with all your games.
