Officials from Nintendo of Europe have admitted that the UK, German and Spanish versions of Super Paper Mario include a bug which causes the Wii console to crash and have offered advice on how to avoid it and the promise of replacement discs. Following consumer reports over the weekend, Nintendo of Europe has now confirmed that the game also contains a serious crash bug, which was not present in the North American or Japanese versions. The official website offers advice for avoiding the bug, which will freeze the system but is claimed not to damage the console. Nintendo of Europe has offered to replace all faulty copies of the game with a new version without the bug, although details of the replacement procedure have not yet been announced. Last month the game Mario Party 8 was voluntarily recalled from shops by Nintendo UK because of inappropriate language. This stemmed from the use of the American English translation of the game, rather than a version specifically tailored to the UK market.
