This is kind of cool news for those of you like me who can’t stand heavy handhelds. Nintendo’s Masahiro Sakurai recently revealed that the upcoming 3DS title Kid Icarus Uprising will come packed with a special stand to help keep the system steady while you play. Truth is, I love the concept behind Nintendo’s 3DS, even if I don’t really own too many games for it, but unfortunately, the system is a bit hefty, especially when I want to play for any extended period of time. Although I wasn’t looking forward to Kid Icarus Uprising so much, having played a demo at last year’s San Diego Comic Con International, this little addition might just change my mind. Keeping the system balanced could potentially improve the gameplay, and I’m sure I’ll be making use of the stand for future titles.

When I think about it, it’s kind of sad that the system would even need a stand. I recently held a PlayStation Vita, which comparatively speaking, felt like air in my hands. It might also explain why I’ll often opt for my iPhone rather than booting up my 3DS. I’m sure Nintendo must have realized it was a bit heavy, but then again, they’ve been doing so well that I’m sure it didn’t bother them as much as it should have. Hopefully, it’s something they’ll take into account when they release the Wii U later this year.
