When Nintendo revealed the 3DS XL, Kotaku asked the game maker about the Circle Pad Pro—you know, the add-on circle pad—as it would be too small for the larger 3DS. Nintendo said that the company had nothing to announce at that time. Fast forward to today.
In the recent issue of Japanese game magazine Famitsu, Nintendo revealed that, yes, the 3DS XL will also be getting its own Circle Pad Pro. Hope it's called Circle Pad Pro XL.
Whatever Nintendo calls it, the add-on is slated to go on sale sometime this year in Japan. No word yet about a Western release date.
