Super Smash Bros for Nintendo 3DS Destroying Circle Pads

There are few things worse than when your handheld gaming console breaks. It’s worse when the new hit game you picked up is causing it.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, released October 3rd, 2014 in North America, has reached nearly three million units sold worldwide and has received rave reviews from critics. It seems the game, known for its intense competitive multiplayer, is also leaving players with broken or completely destroyed Circle Pads. Although the majority of reports come from the original 3DS model, some 3DS XL’s have also been photographed with broken or destroyed Pads.

Thus far, Nintendo has not commented on the issue, leaving two real choices for Super Smash fans – play slower games or be ready to send in for a replacement.

Take a look at some of the damage:

      Ugh, fortunately it’s not affecting anyone I know yet, but everytime I watch them play, I expect the worst to happen!

    Reminds me of when the Select button on my Game Boy Color broke back in the day. Good times.

      On the plus side, it’s not as bad as the palm burns that Mario Party used to give people…

        Oh yeah, I remember getting blisters playing that game. Good thing they took that mechanic out of the sequels, huh?
