3DS Expansion Slide Pad - Import Accessory Preorder US$28.90

NCS Preorder Synopsis
   Reservations are welcome for the 3DS Expansion Slide Pad which is scheduled to ship on December 10, 2011. Who would want a Slide Pad? Anyone who wants to slot his 3DS into a plastic platform which adds a second analog controller to the 3DS and play an assortment of game software which utilizes the pad.  

Upcoming software titles which support the Slide Pad include:

» Ace Combat 3D: Cross Rumble (2012)
» Biohazard Revelations (Early 2012)
» Dynasty Warriors VS (2012)
» Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance (TBA)
» Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D (Winter 2011)
» Monster Hunter 3 (Tri) G (December 10, 2011)

   To be clear, none of the games that support the Slide Pad require the Slide Pad. However, game play is apparently improved when the second analog thumb pad is used.

   Nintendo could probably manufacture a 3DS that integrates the Slide Pad in the future and call it the '3DS-SP' but for now, the ungainly platform that holds the Slide Pad will have to do. A single AAA battery powers the Slide Pad and adds a bit of weight to the integrated unit. Preorders are welcome to ship on December 10, 2011 at JPY1500 or US$28.90 from NCS.
