    So this is out in Japan and I see some available on ebay.

    I guess it is comaptible with American consoles right?

    Is there any announcement on this being released in NA or should I just jump on an import.

    I have RE revelations but haven't really played it much yet.

    personally, I've played three games that allow for the circle pad pro to be used. and i cant imagine it would be very helpful. i've really only used it once on a try out system with kindom hearts myself and i'd actually prefer to play kingdom hearts without it if i had the choice. it felt very weird having to arch my thumb over that thing to reach the buttons. and honestly, you'll be using the buttons a lot more than the camera nub. it really doesnt compare to a 360's second stick.
    though of course, i could be used to the controls from the psp and ds kingdom hearts games... anyway, i find that thing very uncomfortable. and i dont remember playing a lot with the camera in the revelations demo either...

    I read good things about it in the past.

    I see in the listings about Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility.

    Never really bought imports on anything before....anyone know anything about that and how much extra it might cost?

    The XL version looks to have some slight ergonomic improvements over the original.

    I know games are region locked but there is no reason this wouldn't work with any 3DS XL right?

    You're right! I bought the Japanese and it works with my XL.
    By the way, it is great to play metal gear 3;

    Im waiting for this in the US. That is the only reason I don't like my XL compared to my old 3ds. I liked playing RE: Revelations with the CPP.
