A problem has arisen with Smash for the Wii U that's causing some users to encounter error codes, leaving their games and sometimes their consoles unplayable. The most common error codes are 160-0103 when the game is booted up, and 160-1710 on the Data Management page. Many are suspicious that this error is related to an update, but there's no official word yet. These errors can sometimes leave a console bricked, especially after deleting an update, so proceed with caution. Affected users who have contacted Nintendo are being directed to format the system (which can leave it bricked), or mail the console to Nintendo.


The issue is not currently very widespread, but be careful out there, Wii U owners.

UPDATE: Internet sleuthing has revealed that it isn't necessarily Smash's fault; it's been happening with a variety of games.


UPDATE 2: Nintendo is investigating the issue, but maintains that it's only affecting a small percentage of consumers.

“The NX is trying to change the concept of what it means to be a home console device or a hand-held device,” Pokémon CEO Tsunekazu Ishihara disclosed to the paper in an interview with the WSJ. At this point many of us are growing antsy, as the NX is slated for release in March 2017. 

Maybe, it's just about time to unveil this beauty, Nintendo?

Nintendo has announced plans to produce five mobile games by March 2017 in partnership with DeNa.  They have not yet announced what games those will be, but you can be sure they won't be direct ports.  According to President Iwata, they anticipate direct ports being unsuccessful because they "would not match the play styles of smart devices, and the appropriate business models are different between the two, so we would not anticipate a great result."  Nintendo is hoping to acheive "significant results" in producing mobile games, so whatever they choose to do, it'll be a very deliberate decision.

This will get downvoted so hard by all the nintendo fanboys but whatever.
