Japanese gamers looking to expand the experience (and form factor) of the 3DS XL will only have to wait until November 15, when the revised hardware will receive its own, extra large Circle Pad Pro
add-on. The peripheral will cost ¥1,500, or about $20.
Revealed by Nintendo back in September, there are currently no plans to offer the 3DS XL Circle Pad Pro here in the US. The original 3DS received a similar – though smaller – version of the peripheral, selling it on its official store and exclusively at retail
with GameStop. Our pals over at Engadget had some hands-on time with the 3DS XL Circle Pad Pro
last month during TGS 2012
, so feel free to check out their hands-on video. Or not. We're not the boss of you
