    Install the Luma Locale Switcher 3dsx, launch it, wait for your installed titles to load up, select the USA version of Smash and then select USA region.

    I have no idea whether this will solve your issue (I don't play Smash) but it sure as hell solved all of my out-of-region related issues (such as the 3D Sega compilations saving / running correctly on my EUR unit).

    The app wont launch if you have custom theme for FBI installed though, so be sure to remove the FBI theme folder if you have one.

    Just figured out the problem. SaltySD wouldn't let me play when activated.

    Hopefully someone who knows a thing or two about running out-of-region Smash mods can chime in. Luma sometimes needs a little help with the odd game and the Locale Switcher app has always worked for me, its mandatory homebrew as far as I'm concerned.
