Project Sora lead Masahiro Sakurai revealed the news via Twitter.
The game is played using the Nintendo 3DS circle pad and a stylus, meaning players must hold and support the system with only one hand. The stand allows the system to rest on a flat surface or table at an optimal viewing angle to reduce wrist strain.
Nintendo also recently revealed that Kid Icarus: Uprising will be compatible with the upcoming Circle Pad Pro, remapping the stylus controls to the right circle pad.
The Circle Pad Pro will release bundled with Resident Evil: Revelations in Europe on January 27, and as a standalone accessory in North America on February 7.
No announcement has yet been made for the Nintendo 3DS stand to release in Europe or North America.
Kid Icarus: Uprising is scheduled to launch on March 23.
