Super Smash Bros for 3DS Glitch Getting Users Banned for Picking up Peach

By   /   Sep 15, 2014

UPDATE
Moments ago, Nintendo has responded in the increasing dissatisfaction among the players who were getting banned for playing with Peach in the For the Glory mode. They have explained the problem and apologized for it.

What actually happened was that in the For Glory mode, items are not supposed to be available. However a bug was letting players pull turnips with Peach, some players used the cheat and some didn’t however the system automatically banned them.

An update is being grilled right now and will be out in a week’s time.

ORIGINAL STORY:

While this only concerns the Japanese fans of Super Smash Bros., it will also disturb some of the western fans to know that the game has already picked up its first glitch. Super Smash Bros for 3DS released only a day ago and now people are getting banned simply for picking up Peach, the princess of Mushroom Kingdom.

So if you are playing For the Glory online mode and feel like playing with the beautiful princess, think twice before you choose her as the ban lasts for one full day. So far some reports have claimed that the ban activates if you use Peach’s down + B move in a match, however, it is unclear if that is the only thing triggering it.

This is because Link also has a similar attack i.e. down + B but none of the people who have used him complained for being kicked out of the game.

It is very surprising for Super Smash Bros for 3DS to act like this as such bans are usually put in place for stopping cheating and dishonest play. Of course none of these players were doing any of that but it looks like the moderation system of the game is unable to see that.

Also, if you would want to see how exactly does the glitch works, you may check out the video above where one brave player took the stakes of betting banned for the sake of getting a footage of it.

Super Smash Bros for 3DS was released in Japan on September 13, 2014 and is slated to hit the racks in European Union and North America on October 3, 2014. Australian fans will have to wait another day after that. The Wii U version has not received a release date yet.
