Nintendo knows about the Smash 3DS Peach ban problem

And they’re working on a fix

As we previously found out, the Japanese version of Super Smash Bros. 3DS is banning people for playing Peach online during competitive matches — presumably because it mistook her turnip for an item hack.

Nintendo is now aware of the problem, has apologized, and is actively working on a fix — it should be ready by next week. We can assume that it’ll be solved by the time the game arrives overseas, which is good news.
