A 3DS XL Circle Pad Pro Is Coming

June 28, 2012

Disappointed by the lack of a second circle pad on Nintendo’s upcoming 3DS XL? Well, they’re offering players the next best thing, confirming via Famitsu that an XL version of the Circle Pad Pro will be available later this year. No specific date was given, however. Nintendo also mentioned that you’ll be able to transfer all your data and downloaded software straight from your 3DS console to your new 3DS XL if you choose to buy one. In addition, the 3DS XL will be fully compatible with the stand that comes with new copies of Kid Icarus: Uprising, so no worries there. The 3DS XL will be available in Australia on the 23rd of August, for $249.95 RRP.
