Super Smash Bros for Nintendo 3DS is currently out in Japan and judging from streams everyone appears to be enjoying it. However, Kotaku has learnt that the game has caused some Nintendo 3DS Circle Pads to break off completely. It’s either the rubber part of the Circle Pad breaking off or the plastic part underneath which appears to be coming off as well. Nintendo Japan has yet to comment on the situation, but it appears to be reasonably widespread.
