Product Description

The Nintendo 3DS LL grew bigger, however, you don't have to move in a clunky way. The Slide Pad is coming to the rescue. The enlarged device grew larger to accommodate the 3DS LL and inherits all the functions from its smaller, older brother and needs just one AAA battery to work. Make sure that the Slide Pad and the console are fitted properly with each other for a seamless connection. You won't belief how much fun one more analogue stick provide. Optimize your hunting and shooting results with this device. Sometimes, being able to control the camera manually and aim the gun with your thumb do wonders for your survival rates.

For those on a bit of a time limit, I'll leave a brief list of Pros vs. Cons, and a detailed review afterwards.

- Improved control functionality in some games, mainly action titles
- Grips on the sides keep the hands from cramping up anymore
- Extra triggers prove to be far more handy than anticipated
- Adds another Circle Pad for greater control
- VERY good battery life (requires 1 AAA every once in a while)
- Goes in standby mode after 5 minutes of not being used to conserve battery
- Region free!

- Shipping costs because it's an import
- Shipping times
- Small selection of titles that use it
- Requires some breaking in to make the analog a bit more comfortable
- The added weight could bother some, but I personally like my devices to have some weight to them so this is a plus for me

I'm a big action gamer, so when I picked up my 3DS XL, the first game I got was Metal Gear Solid 3D. I noticed that it had the option for a Circle Pad Pro attachment so every time I would buy a new game, I'd see if it also had that functionality. I ended up having three games that use it; aforementioned Metal Gear Solid 3D, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, and Resident Evil Revelations all of which are quite good (MGS has some framerate issues at times, but almost never during actual gameplay). Having played these titles quite a bit, I decided it was time to move on from using the face buttons as camera movement and pick up a Circle Pad Pro.

Now unfortunately, for whatever reason Nintendo hasn't localized the Circle Pad Pro XL to North America and I hadn't realized this when I bought my XL; I have somewhat large hands and the standard 3DS model cramps up my hands like nobody's business.

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
First off do NOT buy these from Amazon until they are going for $20. They are now available on Nintendo of America's website so you no longer need to import.

Now on to my impressions of the actual CPP XL (circle pad pro). For games that support it, it works great. I only have Resident Evil but it changes how you play the whole game and makes it infinitely better! This thing is HUGE but it feels good in your hands and makes it close to the size of an Xbox 360 controller. Feels solid too, the second circle pad feels just like the one on the system and all the buttons (it adds three) are super responsive.

The negatives, however, may turn a lot of people off. Possibly the worst thing is that when playing a game that doesn't support it, you pretty much have to take it off. It's extremely awkward to reach the R button and in a complete bonehead move the CPP doesn't work on games that don't support it. And I mean it doesn't work with them AT ALL. Obviously the second circle pad doesn't work but oddly neither does the additional R button that's added. One of the reasons I bought this (yes I should have done more research) was to use it as a "grip" and make holding the 3DS XL more comfortable, but because playing games that don't support it is so awkward that use is out the window.

Just as annoying is the fact that instead of drawing power from the 3DS, it actually requires one AAA battery. Yes it's only one but it's still annoying. Even worse is that it completely blocks the stylus! That means you either need a spare one or just keep yours out all the time.

It's a decent, solid piece of hardware but it's enjoyment is significantly hurt by several bonehead moves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent accessory for the 3DS XL January 15, 2013

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I decided to import the CPP from Japan to go with my US 3DS XL and I'm glad I did. It works perfectly with the domestic 3DS XL and really makes playing MGS3 so much better. The CPP is surprisingly light, and while it does add a lot of bulk to the already large XL it feels great in hand. I wish more games supported this accessory.

3.0 out of 5 stars Heavy add-on April 23, 2013
I bought the Circle Pad Pro, because Kingdom Hearts 3D Dream Drop Distance can be used with the Circle Pad Pro.

Before you buy the Circle Pad Pro for your 3DS XL, consider the following:
1) The Circle Pad Pro requires a AA battery. The AA battery lid, at least to me, is a pain because you there's a screw you need to take off. I find this unusual, as the 3DS XL should provide enough weight and pressure to keep the AA battery lid in place. The AA battery is required, because the Circle Pad Pro uses the 3DS XL's rear sensor to communicate with the 3DS XL.

2) The Circle Pad Pro doubles the weight of your 3DS XL.

3) With the Circle Pad Pro in place, you cannot access the 3DS XL's WiFi switch and cannot change games on the fly. You'll have to remove the 3DS XL to do either of those. I personally find the blocked access to the game cartridge a plus, as the Circle Pad Pro prevents a 3DS game from slipping out when I have the 3DS XL in my bag. Very nice, at least to me, especially when you have a 3DS game paused before you can get to a save point.

To summarize, I would only get the Circle Pad Pro if you bought a 3DS game that bought the Circle Pad Pro.

Not a bad extra for the system. I do wish it were a bit thicker in terms of handling. But I suppose it's mainly because the system is geared towards the younger audience. Read more
