Nintendo has confirmed that a Circle Pad Pro peripheral is headed to the 3DS XL, which was officially announced last week. Considering the sheer monstrous size of the upcoming Nintendo handheld, we can safely assume that the extra cradle will turn it into a desktop replacement when it releases later this year. We're still not entirely sure why a second thumbstick wasn't included as standard, but we suspect that Nintendo would like some extra money. Who wouldn't?
According to Famitsu [via Andriasang], players will be able to transfer data between their 3DS and 3DS XL, as you can currently do between existing 3DS consoles.
