Its demo will be available later today, September 19, through the Nintendo eShop.

In the fighting game’s online section For Glory, where items aren’t supposed to appear, the blond princess’ turnip-plucking ability is sometimes mistakenly considered cheating and therefore results in a temporary ban. The firm is preparing to fix the the bug via an upcoming update, which is scheduled to be released within a week in Japan.
“We are truly sorry for any trouble this has caused players,” Nintendo said in an official statement.
