First Look at the Circle Pad Pro for the 3DS XL

The Tokyo Game Show has offered us a first look at the Circle Pad Pro for the 3DS XL. The picture above shows a comparison of the Circle Pad Pro for the 3DS and the 3DS XL. This attachment, which adds a second analog stick for the 3DS XL, has not been confirmed for territories outside Japan as of yet. However, it is extremely likely that this add-on will get a worldwide release in due time.


  1. Well, it looks sleeker than the old one. I never had much of a problem with comfort level on the old Circle Pad Pro, and I don't see this being any different.

    I want this soon because I was recently playing RE Revelations (on the XL) and I really miss the second stick.

  2. I am actually looking forward to the release of this. The XL does not hurt my hands when holding it (like the original DS) but I did find using the first Circle Pad Pro to be more comfortable overall. I assume this will be no different. Also, personally, I too feel it looks a bit more sleek than the first one
