  1. The patch made the game play much worse. My Wii U has frozen over 100 times and I have to get up and push the power button to power down…can thhis damage my console?

    • Hi Sean,

      Sorry to hear that, I need to download the patch myself to see whether it’s similar for me. Unsure as to how badly forcing a power down affects the Wii U, but I’d recommend getting in touch with Nintendo support directly.
