The XL version of the 3DS Circle Pad Pro has quietly appeared for sale on Nintendo's online store for U.S. consumers.

The accessory adds a second control stick to the 3DS handheld, something very useful for games like Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, Resident Evil: Revelations, and Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance. The accessory has been available for some time for the original model 3DS, but this is the first time we've been able to purchase the XL version here in the United States.
