3DS Circle Pad Pro dated for Europe

Available as a standalone accessory or bundled with new Resi game in January

Nintendo has slapped a January 27, 2012 European release date on the controversial 3DS Circle Pad Pro.

It'll be available as a standalone accessory and as part of a limited edition Resident Evil: Revelations bundle.

Nintendo, which will be responsible for the sales, marketing and distribution of the Capcom-published game in Europe, said the Circle Pad Pro will allow players to "use specific button combinations for more effective or expert play, or as a traditional twin-stick shooter".

Prices for the standalone Circle Pad Pro and Resi bundle have yet to be announced.
