When Nintendo's upcoming 3DS XL was first revealed to the public a few weeks ago, most gamers had one question: Where the hell is the second analog stick?
It only seemed natural that the 3DS's successor would ship with a right thumb-stick to accompany the left one. After all, a dual-joystick setup is typically the best way to control both a character's movement and a moving camera. And Nintendo released a stand-alone 3DS accessory called the Circle Pad Pro to accommodate controls like that. Most gamers assumed it would be an integral part of the system's next iteration.
