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.

An official Japanese page for Hyrule Warriors shares a bit more about the Wii U game.

First, as many had anticipated, online play is now officially confirmed. The wording on the page suggests that a unique mode is being prepared for those who intend to play over the Internet.

Aside from a brief mention of online support, Nintendo also confirms the automatic posting of your play status to Miiverse and the ability to purchase DLC (this was a given based on the costumes we’ve heard about).

Lastly, Hyrule Warriors supports 1 save file per user. Oh, and the game’s file size weighs in at 7.8GB.
