The 3DS has few good games as it is with very little to look forward to, but even those are massively hampered by the abysmal 3DS system's control setup. Kid Icarus is practically painful to play; there's no excuse for the 3DS not having dual analog sticks to allow a proper control scheme. New Super Mario Bros. 2 is held back by the awful placement and terrible stiffness of the 3DS d-pad. Analog controls have never worked well to control a 2D game, so the circle pad isn't much better.

Why Nintendo didn't just integrate the Circle Pad Pro is beyond me. Talk about not wanting to have to shell out the massive sum of $20 all you want, or "alienating the fanbase" because you simply don't want a system that allows proper dual analog controls, but you're doing the same by insisting that games like that just aren't allowed period.

So what's the deal? Has Nintendo mentioned anything about Wii U ports?

What is the big deal with people and Kid Icarus's controls?

I played it Circle Pad Pro free and didn't even need the stand it came with.

What do you think? Besides if it has "few good games" according to you, why would you care if any of them get ported?

Because he wants to play them with Wii U controls. I'm not agreeing with him, but you should learn to read.

get a thumb stylus.
they still sell them at dx.com, or if you have an original DS you could use the included thumbstrap stylus.
for kid Icarus I can't imagine any better controls than what you get with a thumb stylus, even dual analog or mouse/keyboard wouldn't be that good.
