Annoyed the 3DS XL won't support the standard Circle Pad Pro? Don't worry, the machine will get its own peripheral later this year.

Satoru Iwata told shareholders that Nintendo will release an attachment for the larger machine later on in the year, but didn't share any more details like price, size or how hard it'd be hit with the ugly stick.

You won't need to replace all your 3DS accessories if you upgrade, though; the plastic stand from Kid Icarus: Uprising will work just fine and presumably not crumble under the weight.
