3DS XL to receive Circle Pad Pro later this year, will support data transfer

Although many gamers were disappointed that the 3DS XL design does not include a second Circle Pad, a 3DS XL version of the Circle Pad Pro accessory will be released for the console later this year in Japan.

According to Andriasang, a Q&A published in the latest issue of Famitsu confirms the accessory's existence. Outside of a 2012 release window, no further details are shed on the accessory.

In addition, the Q&A also confirms that purchasers of the 3DS XL will be able to transfer data from the 3DS console, as possible between current 3DS consoles. The 3DS stand packaged with Kid Icarus Uprising is also confirmed to be compatible with the 3DS XL.

Thanks, IGN.
