Strange error not allowing Wii U owners to play Smash Bros

Some unfortunate Wii U owners are suffering from an error code that prevents them from playing their retail copies of Super Smash Bros.

This error can be seen here in this video.

At the time of this post, the only known fix is to send the system into Nintendo for repair. No word on what is causing it or any potential workarounds.

Hopefully Nintendo releases a patch to address this problem shortly. I know I’ll be paranoid about it every time I boot up the game from now on!
