Masahiro Sakurai the Director of Kid Icarus: Uprising has confirmed that the Circle Pad Pro will be compatible with the game. However instead of utilising a contrived control system that would ultimately be unnecessarily tacked on, the peripheral is intended to support left handed players.
While the game requires players to aim using the touch screen, they use the thumb pad to move. Since left handed players will not be able to use this control system accurately, the Circle Pad Pro solves this problem.
Sakurai went on to confirm that this addition was added late into the game’s development when the details of Circle Pad Pro were revealed. Perhaps this is why the game was delayed? It’s likely, but still speculation.
