    Yes
    Damn, no twin-stick controls... that's what came to my mind when I saw the title.
    Well, at least now lefties can play the game without being bothered by the controls(although at a price).

    I've played this game back in 2011 couple months before the 3DS release, I love the touch screen aiming. The controls were perfect.

    Not meaning to troll or something, but touch-aiming is way better (in precise) than analog stick aiming, right?
    If the game is designed with the touch screen in mind, circle pad compatibility would only mean a rushed extra control scheme.

    It still sucks tho

    I agree. Just try MPH and you know the controls will be great! If only Revelations would also have touch screen aiming.

    Really??? Support for LEFTYs??? Where was this sense of inclusivity when Skyward Sword came out. I WANT LEFT HANDED LINK BACK!
    Back on track - is Pit a lefty or a righty?

    The fact that left-handed gamers have to acquire additional and clunky hardware makes this all the more controversial, in hindsight something that absolutely needed to be in the 3DS, and will NEED to be in future revisions of the system.

    I believe that Pit is actually Ambidextrous, let me explain :

    I judge by the way he holds his bow and how one holds it in real life. Lefties hold the Bow on their right hand, while Righties hold it on their left.

    Nowlooking at Pit specifically : Pit holds his Bow like a lefty in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, but like a Righty in Uprising.

    wow thts strange, after its name being given as one of the early 3ds title. it seems they have changed much and nintendo has put effort into putting something "innovative" into this game to sell either one

    Its not an extra control scheme, its not dual analog stick aiming, its the same 1 analog for moving and touchscreen for aiming, what's now being added is the left handed support that poeple wanted. Now lefties can play using the extra analog nub and use touchscreen to aim and play the game how its supposed to be played.

    Proud to be Portuguese but I am in USA.
    I will not buy it that come with the Circle Pad Pro add on. I will wait for Circle Pad build in add on for the next 3DS lite (hopefully). I dont have 3DS because I knew that there will be lite but if the next lite is disappointment then none for me.
