I'm a lefty that hasn't really got into Kid Icarus because of the difficult play style. I've held off getting a 3DS circle pad as I want to upgrade to a 3DS XL, so this is good news for me!

Doesn't seem to actually add much width at all, which is nice.

Not sure about depth though... But I digress. If I had a game that supported it I'd probably get it
I used to be a mod, now I'm just part of the community.

If this doesn't double as a battery extender, then they've missed a trick...

I tried to play my Brothers Kid Icarus and I was glad I hadn't bought it myself, the controls were way to hard to work, but if I had the adapter controller I'd give it another shot I'd have to wait a little bit though because I traded my 3DS for the XL because of my eyesight, I never regretted that.

JUST SHOWS YOU HOW PATHETIC AND OBTUSE NINTENDO ARE AT TIMES.

I was looking at my 3DS original the other day and I was admiring just how terrible it really looks - it's simply an initial prototype that made it to mass production - this was Nintendo at their height of cockiness - who cares because it will sell?

I could just imagine their stingy boardroom refusing second analogues and multitouch and any kind of modern advancement.

I won't go XL because the pixel density is far too low and horrible looking. Even the ancient touch screen on the normal 3DS is FAR too blurry.

CHEAP TAT.
