Super Smash Bros. for 3DS will not support the Circle Pad Pro, according to a note at the bottom of the peripheral’s support page. However, if the game is played on a New 3DS, it will let you use the C-Stick as another way to perform Smash attacks.
The decision to not support the Circle Pad Pro comes as a bit of a surprise, considering its predecessor Super Smash Bros. Brawl supported a wide variety of controllers and control schemes.No comments
In Bravely Second, the wind vestal Agnès Oblige is now Pope of the Crystal Orthodoxy. As a result of her new position, she has been assigned three bodyguards: “Wolf of the Inferno” Jean (in the blue uniform with dark hair), “Bison of Solidity” Nikolai (in the robe and cape) and “Falcon of the Gale” Yu (in the green uniform and short brown hair).
The three were revealed in the latest issue of Jump magazine. The publication also confirmed that Yu will be a playable character.

Bayonetta 2 director Yusuke Hashimoto and producer Akiko Kuroda outlined the game’s new online co-op mode, Tag Climax, during today’s Nintendo Direct.
You and a friend will be able to take part in a series of fights against various enemies and bosses from the main game. If you’re able to win, you will earn Halos to spend on new in-game stuff.
The mode incorporates a risk/reward difficulty system similar to the one from Kid Icarus: Uprising. You can wager Halos to make fights harder – enemies will be much stronger and take more damage – and also increase the amount of Halos you get if you win. It’s a nice feature that takes Tag Climax from a novelty to what could be a decent alternative to grinding out money for new items.
Hashimoto and Kuroda also revealed a new playable character for Tag Climax: Rodin, the weapons dealer from the first game. He appears to hit harder than Bayonetta or Jeanne, but he also seems a bit slower. Another downside is he doesn’t have the ability to slow down the action with Witch Time.
Bayonetta 2 comes out on October 24 in stores and the Wii U eShop in North America. The boxed version will also come with a copy the first Bayonetta. The eShop version will require two separate purchases, but a discount will be applied so you only end up paying $59.98. That’s one whole cent cheaper than a retail copy!StevenNo comments
A representative for Nintendo confirmed to Gamespot that the New 3DS and New 3DS LL (New 3DS XL outside of Japan) will not be able to play games from other regions.
While the announcement is not that surprising – Nintendo’s president Satoru Iwata has previously stated that he is in favor of region locking – many were hoping for a change following the growing campaign asking Nintendo to abandon the practice.
