Hyrule Warriors Legends is now available in Japan, and some players have encountered a troubling issue - the game doesn't give you the option to erase your save data, which means that when you sell the game on, the new owner can't start the adventure from the beginning - they're stuck with your save data.

You might assume this is a ploy by Nintendo to encourage players to only purchase new copies of the game, thereby generating more revenue - but the reality is a little less exciting. It would seem that Nintendo simply overlooked the feature, and the company has since stated that it will introduce data erasal in a future update. Phew!

In case you didn't know, Hyrule Warriors Legends is an enhanced version of the Wii U original and arrives in North America on March 25th and Europe on March 24th.
