In 2014, an exploit in the game's save files was discovered, which enabled homebrew games and applications to be put into the 3DS. This caused prices and demand for the game to suddenly spike.

After the announcement of the exploit, Nintendo removed the game from sale on the Japanese eShop. In Japan, the game was only available as a download title.

This exploit was later made unusable through a 3DS firmware update.
