Paper Mario: Color Splash Pre-Load Option Removed from the eShop

Category: Uncategorized

After recently allowing Wii U owners to pre-load Paper Mario: Color Splash ahead of its October 7 launch, Nintendo quickly took down the option to download the game early.

No explanation was given by the company, but reports from social media and other sources claim that Nintendo accidentally released the full game in the eShop instead of a partial download that would unlock on launch day.

It is currently unknown whether Nintendo will restore the option to pre-load or do anything to customers who managed to get the game early.
