    A black hole will be created in the 3DS CPU and destroy your console :P

    Just kidding, it will just get stuck at the Nintendo 3ds loading screen.

    First of all, there's probably some n3DS check that prevents the game from running at all if it's being ran on an o3DS.
    But even if you patched that out, it will likely not run because it needs more RAM than the o3DS has.
    And even if it didn't need that much RAM, it would be so slow it would be unplayable.
    Look at the tests people have done underclocking the n3DS to o3DS speeds when running n3DS exclusive games. For example Xenoblade. It's completely unplayable.

    it's a bad port anyway.
    Get it on WiiU or even better,play it on PC using emulator.
