3DS Circle Pad attachment, not just for Monster Hunter anymore!

Famitsu revealed the new 2nd-analog stick peripheral coming out for the 3DS, sparking rumors of a complete redesign.  We were left wondering, however, if the dual stick would just be a pack-in for the new Monster Hunter game for the 3DS, or something more widespread.  Well, it turns out the folks over at Kojima Productions (Of Metal Gear Solid fame) have their hands on it too.

“I saw it today in the office. I mean I’m sure it’ll enhance gameplay… it’s a little big.” – Christopher Johns

“It feels good I think… it feels good. It’s just it’s an add-on, so I think the only concern is how will that kind of split through the users. Because there are people who are gonna wanna just carry around a really portable 3DS and then maybe only the really hardcore guys want to play some FPSs on there or something will maybe want to get that attachment.” – Sean Eyeston

“I don’t know if people want to carry it around, right? That might be the tough part.” – Christopher Johns

“It is kind of big.” – Sean Eyeston

“I think it adds a new level to gameplay, so it’s definitely worth it.” – Christopher Johns

“Gameplay-wise I think it definitely adds a lot. It’s just size-wise and I guess aesthetics, right?” – Sean Eyeston

“For those who do play for long periods of time, I think that will win over a lot of people…” – Christine Kogure

 So, it confirms what we were told: it feels good to hold and play with, but its bulky and hideous.  So, any other early adopters out there who are hoping for a redesign? Or would you feel like you got burnt twice by picking up the 3DS early.
