Something seems to have gone wrong in the world of Nintendo. Multiple Wii U users have reported that there is a memory error that has prevented them from the full Super Smash Bros.experience. The memory error shows itself onscreen in a message stating: “(Code 160-0103): There is a problem with the system memory. For help, make a note of the error code and visit support.nintendo.com.” So, if you happened to come across this error and thought that there was something seriously wrong with your system in general, you’re not the only one.

The severity of the error varies greatly from user to user. While there are some who just have a hard time playing the game, others have had their entire system fried to the point of having to send it to Nintendo for repairs. While most of the complaints have come from those playing Smash Bros., it has been suggested that this could affect other games as well.

Nintendo issued a statement later in the day, stating that it is currently looking into the issue and that consumers who are effected by this error should call Nintendo Support.

    It’s not a Smash-specific issue (run some searches, this error has come up years ago), but seems to be related to the save data getting corrupted, as far as I’ve been able to tell.

    The usual warnings not to power off while the game is saving still apply. Granted, Smash and its little loading/saving spinner isn”t as obtrusive as, say, 3D World’s big “I have successfully saved!” alerts.

    For the ultra-paranoid, get in the habit of backing out to the title screen or exiting games via the home menu before shutting off the console.
