Trademark points to Circle Pad Pro to be English name for the add-on

It looks like the Circle Pad attachment might be getting a different name outside of Japan. A trademark filed in Japan makes it look like the attachment will be called the Circle Pad Pro, following the naming convention of the Wiis Classic Controller Pro. However, Nintendo hasnt announced anything about the attachment so who knows?


The Circle Pad attachment isnt far away now from a Japanese release, itll launch in Japan on December alongside Monster Hunter 3G. A release outside of Japan has been touted at least for Europe sometime in February along with Resident Evil.

No Australian release for the device has been announced however the device, if you really want it, shouldnt be region locked; however Monster Hunter 3G will be. Oh well.
