    Pikmin 3 wont start? I've tried on 2 different Wii U consoles, All are properly updated. I even removed the update and reupdated.

    The disc is in perfect 10/10 condition.. Not even a single smudge of any kind front or back.

    The icon starts on the main page then you tap start and the little wii u logo comes up on the top left and then the little round faded out picture of pikmin for the first wii u loading screen starts up (As with all wii u games, the loading screen with music) and then just sits there.. I left it there for 12 hours all day.. Nothing happened.. I even tried pushing all the buttons possible.

    It freezes my Wii U and my gamepad on that part.. Then i have to force reset both.

    I've still cleaned it and tried again to no avail on several consoles, freezes on all.

    I know the game disc is not damaged in any way.

    The strange thing is, The gamepad shuts its self off (The indicator light turns off and its unresponsive) but the pikmin image is still thereo n screen and the backlight for the screen is obviously still on.

    if you think the disc is bad, almost any store will let you trade a game for the same game with your receipt.

    Assuming the consoles are fine I think you have a bad pressed disc, I would return it where you bought it and get a new copy
