Games pulled due to save bug
||This article brought to you by Bulbanews, your community Pokémon newspaper.
As Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver got released across Australia yesterday and European countries today, in the Netherlands the game had a small, if any, release. Nintendo of Europe released a statement claiming that a bug was found in this release that does not allow players to save their game.
Allegedly, the games would load with an error stating that "the save data could not be accessed, please turn the power off and reinsert the DS game card." The bug does not allow players to progress through the game correctly, and thus must be fixed before a final release. A release date has not been set for the corrected game.
Reports of this were believed by some to be an early April Fools' Day prank, though that was not the case.
