In what has to be the most bizarre announcement in history, Weekly Famitsu (via Andriasang), the extremely popular Japanese gaming magazine, has revealed Nintendo will release a Circle Pad Pro that works with the newly announced 3DS XL. Yet again, I’m left asking why Nintendo didn’t just release this built into the device itself. Imagine how bulky this new adapter will be.
For all those that said Nintendo didn’t need to release a second analog on the system, please chime in here because now I’m completely lost. Nintendo had the perfect opportunity to remodel the 3DS so this accessory wouldn’t have been necessary. This seems extremely redundant to me, but everyone else didn’t have a problem with it before, so I can’t wait to hear what you all have to say about this story.
