    I Heard You Liked 3DS Circle Pad So I Put A Circle Pad On Your Circle Pad

    Capcom has let slip that an official Nintendo 3DS add-on circlepad – the circular joystick on the left side of the console – will be available for purchase in February to coincide with the launch of Resident Evil: Revelations.
