Topic: Earthbound Frozen on Wii U

Posts 1 to 6 of 6


So my daughter was playing Earthbound. I haven't played much of it myself yet so I'm unfamiliar with the feature but I guess she went to the phone and tried to RESET. The game says, 'power OFF instead of just pressing RESET. • All right?'

The game appeared to be frozen so she asked for help. I agreed it seemed frozen so I created a restore point and saved her game. Now when I try to load her game back up, it's still stuck on that 'power OFF' screen and I can't seem to do anything. I'm concerned I've made it so she has to start the game over in order to play. Can anyone confirm or is there a workaround?

Just tap the touch screen and press reset, despite what the game says. That message is just in there from the original version when doing that could damage your save data/cartridge. Of course, now it's a digital download, so you don't have to worry.

Just so you know, if you choose a certain option when talking to the phone, it doesn't freeze technically, but it is in fact a primitive save and quit. You agree with the phone to stop playing and it leaves you on the screen until you shut the game off (or reset).
