No price point or release date, but here's what it will look like at least.

Holy shit, I didn't think they'd actually do it. I thought they'd do a Circle Pad Pro redesign.

But they actually just made it bigger.

I love this. So much. I laughed my ass off when I saw it.

Edit: Looks like it's blocking the stylus again.

I got to play around with a 3DS XL and I'm still confused why Nintendo did not put a second circle pad on the system. This just looks ridiculous.

If old, please lock.

Nice

Hopefully they release it soon. It should be an effective melee tool when fighting off the hordes on Black Friday.

Because just a handful of games support it? They probably just did this one for Monster Hunter 4.

Actually, leading theory why there's no second analog built into the XL is because the CCP and games that use it are built around communicating with the infrared port. That's now the CCP interacts with a 3DS.

Essentially, now that the 3DS hardware is finalized, hacking a second analog stick in might not be as simple as one would think. Put it into the system itself, and you must deal with some kind of switch or signal to simulate a CCP starting communication with the IR port, then deactivate that when the IR port needs to be used for other things.

According to Iwata:

When we looked at the design of the 3DS XL, we had to look at various factors. One was battery life. One was the overall size of the unit. And we had to make some trade-offs. The choice, if we were going to include the second analog stick, was to reduce the size of the batteries or make the unit much bigger. What we wanted to do was have a bigger screen in comparison with the overall size of the system, so we had various discussions and had to make trade-offs, and this is the outcome.

Wow, I thought they would work some magic and make use of the space below the buttons, I guess I was wrong. Oh well, The circle pad pro on the original 3DS was really hard to get used to, so i'm curious if this new shape/size will be easier to use?

Well, if nothing else, the big screen makes the side offset a lot less severe.

I think the reason they left it off the first time was because they didn't want to confuse or intimidate people who weren't used to these things with earlier handhelds.
