    Resident Evil: Revelations is out in all regions (I believe). Are you/do you plan on using the Circle Pad Pro with it?

    I'm playing the game without it and it plays perfectly. Just wondering how many are using it.

    I find that while I have it, I don't really need it.

    No, I'm not. Nice addition, but it makes the 3DS a bit awkward for me to hold.

    I'm using it with RE:R. I find it pretty comfortable to use other then the fact that the second analogue has a different resistance then the first making it awkward to aim... I think this issue will be fixed with use though.

    Out of curiosity, what are the available control schemes for RE:Revelations for those not using the CPP?

    ?? have you even watched any of the videos for the title? the game's control method is circle-pad to move pit and stylus on the touch screen for attacks (which include swiping motions and tapping in specific areas). just how would you replicate that using another circle-pad?

    Mine is here (I'm using a Japanese one). It's rather comfy to hold, although on the bulky side. It's perfect for handheld gaming at home IMO.

    My RE:R copy comes this sat. Can't wait to try the game out with it.

    I'm pretty sure it's the same as the demo (and probably The Mercenaries 3D).

    If you don't have the demo, I could look them up and post them here for you.

    I don't have the demo or the 3DS for that matter. I would appreciate you looking up the control schemes.

    I tried it in Gamestop, i have to say, its not that useful in RE. Maybe I buy it in a Monster hunter Pack, but not for this game.
    Besides the Game is really good, I got it for 39€, worth it thanks to onlin Mode etc.
    But Im still hoping Nintendo will add it to the next "lite" Version, so i wont need this big Bulk on my portable Console.

    Type A:
    Walk/run - (Up) Cicle pad
    Rotate - (Left/Right) Circle pad
    Strafe - L and Circle pad
    Quick turn - (Down) Circle pad and B
    Use herb - A
    Ready/Aim weapon - R and circle pad
    Fire - R and Y
    Reload - R and B
    Use subweapon - X
    [Basic controls]

    Type B:
    Walk/Run - (Up) Circle pad
    Rotate - B and (Left/Right) Circle pad
    Strafe - (Left/Right) Circle pad
    Quick turn - (Down) Circle pad and B
    Use herb - A
    Ready/Aim weapon - R and Circle pad
    Fire - R and Y
    Reload - R and B
    Use subweapon - X
    [Circle pad can be used to stride]

    Type C:

    Walk/Run - (Up) Circle pad
    Rotate - A and Y
    Strafe - (Left/Right) Circle pad
    Quick turn - (Up) D-pad
    Use herb - (Right) D-pad
    Ready/Aim weapon - L and ABXY
    Fire - L and R
    Reload - (Left) D-pad
    Use subweapon - (Down) D-pad
    [Camera: ABXY]

    [Brackets are the little notes at the bottom]

    I'm curious to see the Circle Pad Pro buttons. Seems like there's more than enough buttons on the 3DS to begin with.
