The Nintendo 3DS Stand is an accessory that is bundled with Kid Icarus: Uprising in North America, Europe, and Japan. Included free of charge, the accessory was released alongside Uprising on March 22, 2012 in Japan and March 23 in North America and Europe.  It is also available for purchase separately in Japan. 
The stand will allow the user to have more comfort when playing the game, particularly during sections in which the touch screen is in heavy use. The stand can also be folded down, making it compact and portable to take anywhere the holder goes. Masahiro Sakurai, the director of Kid Icarus: Uprising, stated that the Nintendo 3DS Stand is useful for games that use both the Circle Pad and the touch screen at the same time.
