Circle Pad Pro trademarked; possible name for 3DS Slide Pad in North America?

News 3DS Nintendo

Despite Nintendo not announcing a release of the 3DS Expansion Slide Pad, which adds a second circle pad to the 3DS, outside of Japan, Capcom already has stated that the add-on will be available next year for Resident Evil: Revelations. It seems all the more likely now that this peripheral will be released in the West, especially after Siliconera dug up a new Japanese trademark.

The trademark is for a Nintendo 3DS Circle Pad Pro, which would most likely be the name of the new add-on if it were released in the West. Of course at this time, this is all speculation as companies have trademarked things in the past and never done anything with the name, but it is all the more likely that Nintendo will soon have a peripheral for the 3DS… at least there aren’t a bunch of strange peripherals besides this one.

After playing games since a young age and getting into anime a bit later on its been time to write about a little bit of everything.
