Nintendo will be releasing a stand designed for the 3DS when Kid Icarus: Uprising launches in March. The stand is designed to free up the player's hands to allow them to use the touch screen more effectively.
Kid Icarus: Uprising designer Masahiro Sakurai explained on Twitter that the airborne shooting will "work better" when the screen is "secure".
Kid Icarus: Uprising will also support the 3DS Circle Pad Pro, though combined with the 3DS stand might make for a truly awkward gaming experience.
Kid Icarus: Uprising and its 3DS stand bundle will be available on the 23rd of March exclusively for the 3DS.
