XType Plus is suffering from a major bug at present that causes the Wii U to lock up when accessing the game’s online functionality. This is something that was detected following the game’s launch in Europe a few hours ago.

XType Plus was slated for North America today as well, but due to the freezing issues, it has been delayed. We’ll likely need to wait until a fix has been issued before the title lands in the states.
