Circle Pad Pro For the 3DS XL Makes It Even More Monstrous

There are no details on pricing or availability, but as expected, Nintendo has revealed a version of its Circle Pad Pro accessory for the 3DS XL. The add-on further embiggens the already hefty handheld console with an additional analog control stick—a feature that many had hoped would have been included in the re-designed version of the 3DS, but wasn't.

And while Nintendo hasn't said much besides "it's coming," there's no reason to think the House of Mario won't be pushing to have it available in time for oversized stockings come Christmas morning. [Nintendo Japan via Joystiq]
