New Wii U Update causes New Super Mario Bros U saves to be deleted?
As far as bugs and glitches go, the Wii U’s launch has not been a good one. People hacking into Miiverse and finding debug menus and test data, Wii U consoles being bricked because the power went out during an update and random freezes causing all manner of problems for unlucky Nintendo fans, it’s been an absolute disaster on the glitch front so far.
But now it looks like things may have gotten even worse. A new Wii U update has caused another, extremely serious issue; deleting New Super Mario Bros U save files! Yes, the minute a Nintendo Everything reader updated his Wii U, all his New Super Mario Bros U save file was wiped out in one foul swoop. Worse still, it’s not just New Super Mario Bros, the exact same thing also happened to someone else’s ZombiU save data!
Admittedly, a couple of examples isn’t quite perfect proof of a possibly game breaking bug caused by the latest update. For all we know it could be one of those unexplained freak coincidences like how old Game Boy game save data randomly vanished due to the battery. But with the Wii U’s current record, things aren’t looking good.
Watch out New Super Mario Bros U players, it seems your save data could be at risk!
