3DS Slide Pad confirmed, but what the heck can you play?
You can snag your own for 1,500 yen (about US$20) and considering the line up, it may be worth it depending on your love for 3D... and dual analogs. Allow me to direct your attention to the following titles:
- Monster Hunter Tri-G
- Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater 3D
- Kingdom Hearts 3D [Dream Drop Distance]
- Ace Combat 3D
- Dynasty Warriors VS
We're not sure yet if the games will actually require the addon or simply support it, although games which do support the pad will be marked with this icon:
The Slide Pad will require a single AAA battery, so no additional battery for the 3DS itself like some people hoped. While the titles above are scheduled to head to North America and Europe, there's no word yet on whether the device is as well.
Then again, you could always just pop over to Japan and pick one up. NBD.

Um...fuck this will never fit on my 3DS with the Power Grip, what do I do? I don't want my battery to die...
I hate the way it looks... but goddamit, I know I'm going to buy it.
lol. I dunno. xD
Because the PSV will have two. They're preemptively avoiding one the major factors that hurt the Wii's third party support by making the control schemes compatible with their competition, encouraging developers to make multi-platform handheld games instead of Vita exclusives. Most games will probably just use it for an adjustable camera.
You know, this doesn't actually look that bad. Kind of comfy looking, really.
I feel like they should just release a new model of the system with the joystick built in. This current attachment looks awkward and gimmicky in my opinion.
Maybe we could have a pair of goggles to stick onto the screen whilst we're at it, and then use the infra-red port for local play and disable the wireless for local play to save battery power. You know, because the 3DS needs less functionality than it already has.
Why don't Nintendo just release the Virtual Boy Colour? In fact, I think I'd rather have that than the 3DS right now. I love my 3DS, but Nintendo.... what the HELL are you doing? I feel like a sucker, having gone out and bought the thing on launch day. The free games are nice, but it would have been nicer if they'd just given my damn money back because I could have done better things with it than played old games (don't get me wrong though - they're still fun. Well, except for games like Golf. Why didn't we get Super Mario Bros. 3 instead? Or anything else).
What does that emoticon look like? OOOOOH
yup after the burn of the DS to DS lite and the difference between the fat psp and the slim I will never buy another portable console at launch again , never.
GC controller haz 1 analog stick technically thats not copying (and its dead center too...) :P
god dammit now i wait to wait a while after the release of metal gear and kh to see if this thing actually enhances the game.
pffft thats for portable consoles this is for......son of a...
Does Kingdom Hearts 3D really need that? the one on the PSP worked without another analog.
This thing is GIANT. What happened to portability?
This thing looks hella lame
Also why not just make a 3DS XL with the damn thing build it... AND allow people to trade in their old obsolete 3DS' for the new model...
Is it coming in different colours? Cause I gots the blue 3DS and it would make it look even crappier having a different coloured add-on.... -_-
They might as well attach a Virtual Boy while they're at it for all the help that analog stick is going to do. I looks like a freaking parasite!
the placement of the second pad is terrible.
