Nikkei has shared a series of photos that provide a closer look at the Circle Pad Pro for the 3DS XL, which can be found after the break. But while it may look bulky, Brian Ashcraft of Kotaku has said that it’s “not half bad”, and:
…this new, larger Circle Pad Pro is that it feels compact, yet still usable. And more importantly, while Nintendo says the 3DS XL isn’t big enough for a second analog stick, the new Circle Pad Pro’s smart design gives hope that one day it could be.
And that’s coming from someone who hates the Wii U Pro Controller, which I think adds value to the praise.
