Kid Icarus Uprising project leader Masahiro Sakurai has confirmed to the Official Nintendo Magazine that Kid Icarus Uprising will fully support the Circle Pad Pro peripheral. Sakurai told the publication that the Circle Pad Pro will be useful for left-handed players who may find it tricky to play the game with the stylus in their right hand. The game is still fully playable without the Circle Pad Pro.
“The way we are using the Circle Pad Pro in the game is to provide support for left-handed gamers. We’ve made it possible to use the right Circle Pad in place of the left one.”
