Resident Evil: Revelations 3DS Circle Pad Pro bundle exclusive to Zavvi

Costs less than the solus game RRP.

Resident Evil: Revelations will be available in a bundle with the 3DS Circle Pad Pro only at UK online retailer Zavvi.

Zavvi parent company The Hut Group has the exclusive rights to sell the bundle in the UK, Nintendo confirmed to Eurogamer.

GameStop holds that same privilege in the US.

Zavvi priced the Resident Evil: Revelations bundle at 29.95, cheaper than the solus game's 34.99 RRP.

It's not a bad offering, considering the fact that the Circle Pad Pro separately costs around 14.99.

Resident Evil: Revelations is the first game to support Nintendo's bulky new 3DS accessory, which adds an extra analogue pad and a bonus two shoulder buttons to the system.

The next title to support the Circle Pad Pro in Europe will be Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater 3D. The device first launched last month in Japan alongside Monster Hunter Tri G, which currently lacks a European release date.

"It feels like they've done their very best to solve an essentially intractable problem," Eurogamer's Fred Dutton said after going hands-on with the Circle Pad Pro. "It's an extremely competent hatchet job, but a hatchet job nonetheless."
