Circle Pad Pro For Nintendo 3DS XL Displayed On Nintendo’s Website

Recommended Videos

Nintendo have officially revealed the new Circle Pad Pro accessory for the Nintendo 3DS XL in Japan. Price and release date haven’t been mentioned yet, but the accessory is listed on their Japanese website and looks similar to the orignal Circle Pad Pro for the regular Nintendo 3DS model.


The original Circle Pad Pro was revealed alongside Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate back in 2011, and a limited number of bundles containing both the game and the device were made available.


Given that there have been commercials of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate and Monster Hunter 4 running on the 3DS XL in Japan, revealing a Circle Pad Pro accessory for the XL at this point makes sense.
