    3DS XL does not have a second Circle Pad. Not yet, at least.

    Nintendo will be offering a 3DS XL version of the Circle Pad Pro some time this year. The company revealed plans for the accessory in a Q&A about the 3DS XL that appeared in Famitsu this week (you can view a sample page from the Q&A at Famitsu.com).

    They couldn't have just added a second circle-pad to the XL to begin with? Fucking Nintendo. :angry:

    Can't wait to see what this next gimmick will look like. It'll probably be the size of a damn book.

    Oh wow... I didn't know what to say. :unsure:

    That battery better be filling a lot of room when it comes to breaking it down. The rage if there is room. :lol:

    Hopefully it is a controller and not a slide pad attachment.

    At this point, I'll wait for the 3DS XL Pro. :/

    Maybe my hands wont cramp, People make fun of the circle pad, but I have really huge hands.
    The normal 3ds hurts to hold, I'm forced to used the KId Icarus stand.

    If Nintendo was smart (and greedy), they would have planned for this so the CPP XL shouldn't be as big.

    Why don't they just add a mouse and keyboard while they're at it?

    Bitch bitch bitch bitch bitch moan moan moan moan. I'm sorry, but unless you work with Nintendo or your a stock investor in theirs and shit, you don't know any of the reasons behind anything they do.

    Anyways, this is pretty cool. A great way to not cut your userbase in half and shit. Still don't wanna get one because I find that there isn't anything much worth having the second pad for. I just want the XL and Kingdom Hearts on it :D

    Speculation blah blah.


    And to call this great just makes you seem like a Nintendo apologist.
    • They had the space to put it on the system.
    • It couldn't fragment the userbase because devs would make two control-schemes.
    This is just them being greedy.

    Maybe it's the devs who didn't want it. Seriously, you saying them greedy is no different than me saying this is a good way to not cut the users in half.

    Im wondering if it will be a circle pad pro like the original shitastic one, or if nyko will develop the same circle pad/battery trippler for the xl.

    Why wasn't it just built into the system to begin with?
    Nintendo what are you doing?
