Nintendo has confirmed this morning that the new Circle Pad Pro attachment will be released in the UK on 27 January 2012, alongside Resident Evil Revelations.
The Circle Pad Pro adds an extra control scheme to the game, allowing for more traditional twin-stick style play.
It's no surprise that the new attachment is arriving alongside a Capcom-developed game - the Japanese firm helped develop the Circle Pad Pro tech for use with Monster Hunter 3G.
Resident Evil Revelations will be available as a standalone game or as a special edition bundle. The game is split into the more traditional survival horror of the Campaign mode and the recently announced Raid Mode, which takes inspiration from the recent Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D.
Campaign mode takes place between the events of Resident Evil 4 and 5, and tells an elaborate tale involving Resi old hands Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine plus a host of new characters.
