C-Stick it to the man

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS will support the New 3DS console's C-Stick, but won't be compatible with the Circle Pad Pro accessory for the original 3DS and 3DS XL.

The information comes from Nintendo's official Japanese support pages, and has been translated by posters on NeoGaf.

This follows news that Retro City Rampage: DX is getting updated to take advantage of the additional control options of the New 3DS, but won't retrospectively support the Circle Pad Pro.

The New 3DS launches in Japan next month, and is coming to the west in 2015.
