Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing, has praised Nintendo’s decision to release an add-on for the 3DS to enable dual analogue control.

Officially called the Circle Pad attachment, Hirshberg has praised Nintendo’s decision, labelling it a “smart move” in an interview with IndustryGamers.

Although Hirshberg had no formal announcement to make in regards to the peripheral, he stated that it make the hardware “more relevant and compatible to the style of games we make.”

Further, Hirshberg claimed “it was a great move and it opens up that platform to more styles of games.”

Nintendo officially confirmed the attachment last week.
