So far, only one game has been confirmed to use the new peripheral; the recently announced ''{{wp|Monster Hunter Tri#Monster Hunter Tri G|Monster Hunter Tri G}}''. Monster Hunter supervisor Ryozo Tsujimoto has gone on record to say:
"[The Expansion Slide Pad] provides a good grip on the system" and it will be "a secret weapon which will allow you to play the game with the same feeling as playing {{wp|Monster Hunter Tri}} on {{bp|Wii}}".
Nintendo plan to reveal more information regarding to Expansion Slide Pad at a later date.
