3DS owners beware the upcoming Super Smash Brothers for 3DS could do more harm for your system then good. Earlier this week Super Smash Brothers for 3DS launched in Japan and as we know a lot of Japanese gamers have bought and are currently playing the game however they are currently experiencing a number issues with the 3DS. Now this isn't to do with the systems inner workings it instead is the fact the game is doing harm to the circle pad, I believe this is a case of the stress a lot of players are putting on the system. According to reports this issue is mostly affecting the original model of 3DS, there have also been a few reports of similar things happening with the XL model, as it stands though there have been no reports about the 2DS facing the same issue. The problem the game is apparently causing is that the circle pad rubber top is being destroyed from over use or from rough play and has been disconnecting itself from the console. There have also been reports of the plastic part underneath the rubber component of the circle pad coming off also. So if you are planning on buying Super Smash Brothers on the 3DS heed caution and be as careful as possible with the circle pad while playing and don't be to rough.
Of course it is a good thing these reports are coming out now so that we can be cautious with the game, however I also feel this could possibly hurt sales of the game because of this issue but only time will tell.
