Nintendo have announced the UK release date of the 3DS Circle Pad Pro XL. The 3DS peripheral will be released on 22 March, the same day as Monster Hunter 3: Ultimate.
You may remember that the Circle Pad Pro was designed with Capcom for the release of Monster Hunter 3G in Japan in 2011. Since then, we have been able to use the Circle Pad Pro with games such as Kid Icarus: Uprising, Resident Evil Revelations and Metal Gear Solid: The Snake Eater 3D have all used the peripheral which adds an extra Circle Pad to your 3DS.
However, you can't use a Circle Pad Pro with 3DS XL so it's good news that a larger version is one the way, especially for left-handed Kid Icarus fans!
Unveiling the Circle Pad Pro XL, Satoru Shibata said the the Circle Pad Pro XL is a good alternative for those who prefer to play with two analogue sticks.
