The #DS XL version of the Circle Pad Pro – which adds a second analog stick to Nintendo’s latest portable – will began retailing in Japan on November 15. Siliconera spotted the date on Nintendo Japan’s website, where the peripheral is priced at ¥1,500. No word yet on western launch but with Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate debuting in early March, you can probably hazard a small wager on its eventual appearance.
