Stupid-Looking 3DS Slide Pad Gets a Monster Box

Nintendo's dumb-looking and uncomfortable 3DS Slide Pad will be sold separately as well as bundled with Monster Hunter 3 (-tri) G.

Nintendo is releasing two Monster Hunter 3 (-tri) G bundles in Japan. One comes with the slide pad and the game. It's priced at ¥6,990 ($91)

The other costs ¥20,800 ($271) and comes with the game and a Monster Hunter-branded 3DS. The game can be played with or without the extra slide pad.

Both will be out Dec. 10, when Monster Hunter 3 (-tri) G hits the 3DS. There doesn't seem to be a bundle that comes with all three—that doesn't make much sense!

The 3DS Expansion Slide Pad will be available separately Dec. 10 for ¥1,500 ($20).
