I might have been up in arms about the 3DS XL not having an extra slide pad built right in to its larger frame, but Nintendo has us covered. According to Famitsu via The Verge, we can expect a new Circle Pad Pro out this year for the 3DS XL so that we can all enjoy Monster Hunter Tri or something. Sources close to my imagination expect the 3DS XL to be the size of a cafeteria tray when this is attached.
