    GamesRadar have reported on the newly released pictures of the circle pad pro which will fit the 3DSXL. There is no word on if it will appear outside Japan.

    Surely they could have taken this time to redesign the thing. I could have given them a far better design that both of those.

    And here I thought the XL was in remission.

    So, does the addition of the new Circle Pad Pro just make it the 3DS XXL?

    At least the contours seem somewhat more ergonomic. Though I still stand by my stance that the 3DS (XL) should have had a 2nd circle pad integrated in the first place. LOL
    If only this could integrate an extra battery too :)

    Anyway, I am wondering if Nyko will release their take which will boost battery life. It would be interesting to see what they will come up with.

    huuuhaah! what a joke nintendo! why didn't they just put the dam thing built in and save us the waste of having to upgrade later on when they release a newer model with it built in? nintendo are starting to turn into apple.

    They could but knowing nintendo's philosophy they won't because if it works then don't change it just modify it slightly and say its awesome.
