Watch Nintendo's pre-TGS 3DS Conference live
Monday 12 September 2011
A special Nintendo press conference on September 13 is expected to unveil the Nintendo handheld's new Expansion Slide Pad designed to work with
Monster Hunter 3G and other games.
While Nintendo is fond of overhauling its handheld consoles (just as Apple likes to enhance the iPhone), a full redesign may yet be too soon for the seven-month old 3DS.
Instead, the proposed accessory would cradle the 3DS, adding a second slide pad on the right-hand side.
That would give it the sort of dual analogue stick function employed by its emerging rival, the PlayStation Vita.
Nintendo had previously introduced the enhanced Wii Motion Plus controller at a time when the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 were recieving their own optional upgrades
The Nintendo 3DS Conference 2011 on September 13 is to start at 12 noon, Japanese time.
That equates to 8pm PDT and 11pm EDT on September 12, and 4am BST, 8.30am Indian Standard Time, 11am in Singapore and Malaysia, and 1pm in Sydney, Australia on September 13.
