Nyko Tries to Make Circle Pad Pro Pretty

Extends battery life, tries to stay out of ugly tree

The 3DS Circle Pad Pro isn't widely loved, it's safe to say, with comments around the peripheral ranging from 'it's OK and works' to 'OMG WTF!!!'. Much of the attention when it released was around arguments that 3DS should have included two Circle Pads in its design, and also that it was...
