Revamped 3DS With Less 3D More Control Arriving Shortly?

Rumours have started circulating reporting that Nintendo might be developing a revamped version of its portable 3DS console with a little less emphasis on the 3D and more on the control side by either adding or/and releasing a new analog control stick adapter

The reports have originated from the French website 01net, who has an anonymous source that reveals that Nintendo are currently looking to revamp their 3DS portable gaming device and also launch an adapter that will enable you to add a controller to the righthand side of your 3DS, and will be available for around $10 when released. In an attempt to correct the lack of a controller on the right side which Nintendo feels has been a mistake not to include.

We haven’t really gotten the details down, but it was going to be something really meta along the lines of how Blizzard is coming full circle by ripping itself off just like it did Games Workshop all those years ago, only they didn’t really make DOTA, did they? But they made fans who made DOTA, so that has to count for something, right?
