​Super Smash Bros. Glitch Bans Players for 136 Years

That's a long time, but maybe just wait until the Wii U version comes out in a few weeks?

Recently, Japanese Twitter user Zenaorz1 uploaded this image of a 71,582,030 minute ban—which equals 136 years. The image has been retweeted over one thousand times, and Zenaorz1 was left wondering what caused this.

As website Always Nintendo points out, others have been experiencing the ban glitch as well. On the Smash Bros. subreddit, Redditor seakladoom uploaded a how-to guide to avoiding this glitch:

A. Don't target a single player in four-player multiplayer.

B. Until this is fixed, only use one-on-one versus.

C. Don't use online. Heh.

D. Don't quit during a match.

Redditor rstevoa has an insightful explanation that could shed light into the glitch (check it out).
