Although it was previously thought that the Circle Pad Pro XL would not be making it Stateside, a listing for the peripheral has appeared on ShopNintendo, Nintendo of America's official online store. The add-on is available for pre-order at $19.99 and is scheduled to ship this Friday, 19th April.
An enlarged version of the original Circle Pad Pro and aimed solely at 3DS XL owners, this controller expansion allows gamers to use a second analog stick. It's compatible with titles such as Kid Icarus: Uprising and the recently released Monster Hunter 3: Ultimate.
