Newsbrief: Nintendo has confirmed that a larger version of its Circle Pad Pro accessory for Nintendo 3DS, which attaches to the base of the handheld and adds a second analog stick, is on the way for the 3DS XL.
The 3DS XL was unveiled earlier this month with significantly larger screens than its predecessor, and is due for release in August alongside the launch of New Super Mario Bros. 2. However, the original Circle Pad Pro dock is not compatible with the 3DS XL.
Nintendo has now revealed to Famitsu (as translated by Kotaku) that the 3DS XL will receive its own version of the Circle Pad Pro. This larger version is due for release in Japan later this year, although no word has yet been given regarding a version for the U.S.
