    This is a project I hope to start soon. Using the circle pad pro, some custom paint and a custom housing I plan to make this wonderful piece of artwork. Be mindful this will still be a 3DS, but it will come equipped with an even larger battery, a second row of shoulder buttons, and a second analog stick all in Gamecube fashion. So what do you think, worth it? I would also like to see any concepts you guys can think of. :D

    I find this an odd decision, however good luck! That is a design kinda people wanted from get go, having a second joy stick, personally I think people just suck at controllers. Battery life would probably wind up as a boss.

    Like everything about it, except the blue second triggers, I would have gone with a grey like on the Gamecube's controller.

    At first, I thought it was going to be a portable GameCube inside 3DS housing.

    Your concept looks cool, good luck on your project.

    If the C-stick is done Gamecube style, how are you going to close it?

    I think all he meant by that is that it would be a normal circle pad that is yellow and have "C" engraved on it.

    Oh, that makes a lot more sense. Not quite as cool, though. Meh.

    Second row of shoulder buttons and extra analog stick? So like a built in CPP?

    Ah, like I double post that often. (Which, I think this is the first time I've ever done that.) So sue me...

    Objection! Double posting is not a criminal offense, therefore, you can't take me to court!

    (ON topic, how will you build a second cpp into the 3ds XL housing?)

    I think it looks quite ugly plastering "Gamecube" all over it especially when it's not a gamecube and doesn't have any GCN games, but the buttons seem fine. Also, do you know what you're even getting in to? You're gonna need a circle pad pro also.
