UK Online Retailer Zavvi, announced today that the widely anticipated release of Resident Evil: Revelations on the Nintendo 3DS will be bundled with the Circle Pad Pro exclusively through their online store.
A lot has been made of the Circle Pad Pro since it was unveiled, the whole fiasco being dubbed ‘Nubagedden’ by the guys over at Destructoid. However if recent previews are anything to go by, then the Circle Pad is apparently not going to be that much of a issue, and can only serve to enhance the gameplay of the titles that are set to support it.
If does throw Nintendo’s intentions into suspect territory though, with many believing that the 3DS will receive a re-design sometime in 2012 that will include the 2nd circle pad already attached to the device.
For the moment though, using the Circle Pad Pro seems like it’s going to be the only way to get the best experience out of Resident Evil: Revelations, and with Zavvi charging a lovely £29.99 for the entire bundle then it can only serve to sweeten the deal. The packshot can be found below.
