Update: A Nintendo spokesperson told Eurogamer the company had "nothing to announce at this time".
Original story: Angelic shooter Kid Icarus: Uprising will be released with a stand for the 3DS in Japan.
Lead designer Masahiro Sakurai revealed the new peripheral via his Twitter account last night.
The game's touch-sensitive airborne shooting can "work better" when the screen is "secure", Sakurai wrote. He suggested gamers try it with other 3DS games too.
Kid Icarus: Uprising lands in the UK in March and already supports the Circle Pad Pro peripheral for lefties. We're checking with Nintendo to see if European gamers will get a go on the stand too.
