So you have probably heard about the pocket-busting size that the new Nintendo 3DS XL will have when it is released later this year in North America. Well today it was revealed that Nintendo is planning to make it so the Nintendo 3DS XL will no longer be a portable handheld gaming device. They are planning on doing this by releasing a Circle Pad Pro for the Nintendo 3DS XL system.
So… while the poorly received 3DS accessory will expand the 3DS XL to an even larger size, assuring that even the biggest cargo pant pockets will have difficulty holding the thing. While many may argue that Nintendo should have included the second circle pad on this XL version, it would probably have royally ticked off anyone who already owns a Nintendo 3DS, so in the end this may have been their best choice.
