Ok, so this might be a tad long, but just causei would like to give as much real information as i can to make my situation clear. I own a WiiU USA NTSC 32Gb Model, one of the earlier first models of the console. I have a large selection of games both physical and Digital for the device and they all work, except for 3 titles. Bayonetta 2, Kirby And the Rainbow Curse, Devil's Third. Here is what happens with each title: Bayonetta 2 : Loads the game up to menus, when starting Story mode the console will hardlock on the first loading screen 100% of the time, every time. Needs to manually restart console. Kirby and the Rainbow Curse : Loads the game up to menus, game will lock on the first cutscene, 100% of the time always in around the same spot in the cutscene. I can still press home and close the software, no need to restart. Devil's Third : Game locks up in the Intro screen before reaching up main menu. Hardlocks the console, needs a manual restart. Here is what i've already done to try and fix this: I have tested different copies of the same games (both new and used). No change I have deleted the game files from the console and tried the games again. No change. I have formated the Wii U entirely. Twice. No change. I have created a new Nintendo account after formatting the console. No change. I have left the Wii u Unplugged for 72 hours before trying all the above again. No change. No other game has this issue. Neither Digital or physical. Bayonetta 1 works fine, issue is only on Bayonetta 2. Bayonetta 2 Demo from the e Shop works with no problem. No matter where i look or where i seek help out i cannot find a solution to this. It baffles me. I have no homebrew installed on my Wii U, but i have the Homebrew channel working on the virtual Wii in the machine. The console was bought brand new, not refurbished, and has showed no other issues ever. All discs have been checked for scratches and dirt multiple times and they are all clean. No wierd noised, no excessive heat, no weird visual glitches or noises from the hardware. Does anybody have a clue of what might be going on? It's driving me nuts to have a console that works perfectly EXCEPT for these 3 games that are absolutely unplayable!
