Europe gets a Resident Evil: Revelations Circle Pad attachment bundle

Nintendo UK has announced the upcoming bundle that will include the new Circle Pad attachment for the Nintendo 3DS in the special limited edition of Resident Evil: Revelations when it arrives in Europe in January.

The Circle Pad attachment adds a second Circle Pad and additional shoulder buttons to the Nintendo 3DS (as well as adding a bit of girth to the device) for added functionality to compatible games. The peripheral was first seen when it was announced for Japan’s Monster Hunter Tri-G. The attachment will also be compatible with the upcoming Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater 3D.

This marks the first announcement for the peripheral outside of Japan. No US release date has been announced, although Capcom has denied any bundle for the sort hitting American shores. Resident Evil: Revelations will release in Europe on January 27th, before hitting the US on February 7th.
