Some Smash Bros. players encountering error codes that can brick Wii U systems
Super Smash Bros. for Wii U appears to be causing major issues for some users.
Players have encountered error code 160-0103, which may be caused by the game’s update data. The error seems to occur at random points though some say it happens after playing For Glory and booting the Wii U again.
Error code 160-0103 may stem from update data created by Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. While all other parts of the console can be accessed, the real trouble begins when launching Smash or the Data Management page.
Opening the latter results in error code 160-1710. After seeing this code, Wii U owners have encountered issues like complete Wii U memory wipes and bricked systems.
Those who came across the original error are apparently advised to format their systems. However, they’re then presented with the second error code with no option but to send in their console to Nintendo.
Despite all of these issues, Nintendo is said to be working on a fix.
