Despite a handful of games playing much better with two sticks, the decision was made to provide another plastic add-on down the line, and this morning Nintendo have confirmed that it’s coming with the first image released.
The image shows another snap-on unit, like the first Circle Pad Pro, which considerably bulks up the size of the already rather massive 3DS XL.
I still think this is an absolute mess, a design disaster, and still have no idea why Nintendo didn’t take the opportunity to add one to the main console itself when they did the XL revamp.
There’s no price or date yet. In the meantime, here’s our review of the 3DS XL.
