    So, this is just out of curiosity, more than anything. I turned on my 3DS, waited about 10 seconds so everything could load, and tried to start up Kid Icarus: Uprising, which was already in the slot before the console turned on. The screen turned black, as if to load the game, and froze. The homescreen music kept playing, but nothing else happened and no buttons would respond. I ended up having to long-press the power button to turn it off and reset. I had no issues afterward.

    Anyone have this kinda experience before or know what might've caused it? I'm just curious.

    yea it seems to be if a game is left in sometimes and the 3DS does things in sleep mode cna cause it to just freeze, the freeze also occurs sometimes when the 3DS is shut so when you open all you see is black screen

    used to do it on Zelda OOT 3D
    they fixed it with an update

    now Kid Icarus seems to have the same bug

    I never had that issue with OoT 3D, but i didn't get my 3DS till this January, so maybe it was already fixed by then. At any rate, this is the only time I've had this issue, except when using my SuperCard DSTwo

    I had the same problem, a few days ago.
    I've opened up StreetPass Mii Park, and it crashed.
    And yes, I've been on the latest Firmware, since it came out.
