3DS Circle Pad Pro XL Available Now Through Nintendo Store

Nintendo slipped the 3DS XL version of the Circle Pad Pro in their online store recently, finally giving U.S. consumers a way to get the joystick add-on without having to import it from Japan.

The original 3DS Circle Pad Pro was a GameStop exclusive here in the U.S. and the larger XL model, which was first revealed at TGS 2012, has been locked to Japan since being introduced late last year. Now it looks like the Nintendo Store is taking orders in the U.S., with plans to begin shipping the accessory on Friday, April 19th.

The list of compatible games isn't a very long one, but titles include Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, Resident Evil Revelations, Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, Metal Gear Solid 3D Snake Eater, and Kid Icarus: Uprising. Nintendo want's $20 of your hard earned dollars to send one to you.
