3DS Circle Pad Attachment Dated for Europe

The European release date for the much maligned 3DS expansion that adds a second circle pad has been revealed.

According to Nintendo Europe, the whacky attachment is coming out in that territory on January 27th - the same date as Resident Evil: Revelations, which (not that coincidentally) supports the device.

Just when it's going to come out here, however, is unknown; Resident Evil Revelations is - according to wikipedia, at least - not due out in this territory until the fourth quarter of 2012.

Do we know the price? Im still not convinced about the peripheral - I doubt that many people will buy it (other than hardcore nintendo fans) and I think Nintendo's developing this peripheral has brought more negativity to the company than the lack of a 2nd joystick did in the 1st place. Still, if nintendo does a marketing blitz and puts the right spin in place and emphasises the advantages of this device, then we may see excellent sales.

Nothing's been announced here - it's pretty cheap overseas, though, priced at under $20 NZ equivalent. It seems likely that it will be included with Revelations, which retails for $50 USD (rather than the usual $40 USD that other 3DS games go for there).
