    Nintendo Releases Solution to Metroid: Other M Bug

    Metroid Other M - Locked Door In Sector 3

    Thank you for playing Nintendo products. We have identified an issue with Metroid Other M, which was released on August 31, 2010. While this happens in only rare instances, we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this issue may have posed to our players.

    Problem:

    There is a door in Sector 3 that cannot be unlocked and opened. It remains red and locked, making it impossible to advance in the game.

    Location Of The Door:


    The door that remains red and locked is located in the basement of the Desert Refinery in Sector 3. After defeating the crustacean boss enemies located on the top level of the Desert Refinery, an elevator appears that goes down to this area. The door can be found on the other side of the wall from the three Grapple Points.

    The Cause Of This Problem And How To Avoid It:

    This sequence of events will cause the door in Sector 3 to remain locked:

    1.In the room after the large lava area in Sector 3, battle the Space Pirates to unlock the Ice Beam.

    2.Proceed to the second room ahead.

    3.Defeat the enemies with spiked, purple legs to unlock the door at the end of the room.

    •- To create the issue: Do not go through this door and instead backtrack to the room where the Ice Beam was obtained. Continuing to play from here creates the issue.

    •- To avoid the issue: Proceed through the door that was just unlocked at the end of the room before doing any backtracking to any previous rooms.
    FIXING THE ISSUE

    If you are experiencing this issue, we are able to resolve it by fixing your save data. For instructions on how to set up a repair by sending us your save file on an SD card, or for other options, please call 1-800-255-3700. Representatives are available from 6:00 am to 7:00 pm (PST) seven days a week.

    Was wondering what they were going to do about this. Send them the save file...O well, at least they did something. Never ran into this problem myself but I read about it before hand and avoided it.
    Damn I suck!!!!

    So you have to spend $50+ of a game, $10 on an SD card plus shipping and handling to send the SD card in. Way to go Nintendo. Great solution!!

    It won;t be long before the Nintendo save game fix gets distributed across the net.

    I wonder what the "other" options are. If you can copy to SD you should just be able to send them the data.bin.

    They should just post the darn file on their site to download with instructions. It's not like you are downloading the actual game, and they obviously screwed up on this. This is another reason folks don't like going through them for silly support issues that have nothing to do with modding, but end up here asking for help.

    I remember, shortly after purchasing the wii having wiimote sync issues. My wife and I were on the phone with the guy for at least an hour trying all the stuff he said to do until he finally said to send them off to them.
    I got on the web and found the solution, which didn't match up to what he was saying at all, within 10 minutes.
