Due to the presence of a game-breaking bug, XType Plus was recently removed from the European Wii U eShop and omitted completely from the North American equivalent.

Luckily, today the developer PhobosLab announced through its Miiverse account that the team behind the title have managed to locate the bug that has been causing all the mischief and – hopefully – have dealt with it. PhobosLab is currently busy testing the game to make sure this sort of mishap doesn't happen again.

Here's the official Miiverse post:

Good News! We were able to locate the crashing bug and fix it!

A new version of the game is currently being tested. So far, everything looks great! I hope I can announce a release date for the update very soon.

Again, thanks for your patience! I can't wait to see you all in the online leaderboards

The error occurred when users attempted to access online leaderboards, where the arrival of a few hundred entries in Europe prompted consoles to hard freeze.

Will you be picking up a copy once it's re-released, or has this put you off the game to a degree?
