Must be dat Monster hunter 4. Playing it on old psp with only 1 analog stick was a massive hassle.

The circle pad pro should help the game's control but its still a bit clunky. Oh well, dat MH4 should make them forget that.

3DS has its own Circle Pad Pro. 3DS LL/XL has its own. If 2DS also has its own CPP, isn't Nintendo basically making a fool out of you/thinks you're an idiot who'll buy anything Nintendo?

Unless you did include second analog stick in your first model then don't bother including it in one of the new models. No need to fragment the fanbase.

I have not used mine sine res revolutions but Zavvi had a deal where you got the circle pad for a penny extra so im not too fussed although the original 3ds fits in my hands better when its on. I hope Nintendo add it into a few more games.
