I saw two other topics about it on the board— I wanted to play Smash 3DS but the game wouldn’t load. I have a physical copy and I played it since launch pretty regularly up until Ultimate’s announcement. But now, no matter what I try, the game won’t load and just stays on a black screen. I’ve read that the cart could be faulty, but I’m wondering if this is an issue for Smash 3DS specifically?

I’m getting flashbacks of Pokemon Gold where the internal battery died and my beloved Pokemon were lost forever, that was the end of my childhood right there

I had the same issue, Rob. Physical game, original model 3DS. The game will boot up, and I can select a mode and a character, but it will then go to a black screen and stay there. Redownloading the patches did not fix the problem. From what I have been reading in different corners of the Internet, this has become a relatively common issue.

My suspicion is that a 3DS system update broke something in how the unit interacts with the game, but I can only guess, at this point.

Huh, it could be a system update issue... that's a new angle I haven't heard. I wonder why it wouldn't affect everybody though?

I think that the different models of 3DS all have different firmware and version histories, but, unfortunately, not many of the other cases I have seen have posted which version of the 3DS they are using.

Well, if anyone else has this issue and looks it up, let it be known that I have the 25th anniversary zelda 3ds

Haven’t played in a good while, but I’ll look into it with me having the latest Update.
CAPCOM needs to make Mega Man: Powered Up 2 & Mega Man: Powered Up 3 & SQUARE-ENIX needs to REmake FFV & FFVI for the Nintendo Switch.

Just adding my name to the list here.

I can play the game a bit, but sooner or later it jams up since new enemies won't spawn when I am in a match, or it takes over 5 minutes for a game to load.

Noting here, I already tried a system reset/transfer. Doesn't fix it.

I don’t have that issue and I am playing it on my NEW Nintendo 3DS XL.
