Hi Guys, I need your help!

My 6yr old son saved his birthday money and bought lego city undercover for the Wii U. He loves it and had got to chapter 12 (just after you unlock the helicopter) but then accidently deleted his saved game. I've never seen him so gutted! Its taken him ages to get this far.


I couldn't work out how he'd done it at first but I've but I've figured it out (others should be aware):

On the New game/Load game screen he accidently moved the curser up and selected new game - it then takes you to the next screen to select a slot to save in.He selected his save game not realising he had selected 'new game' and bam! easy as that! Gone.


My question is, can i recover it? (it wasn't backed up to an sd card) and if not, is there somewhere i can download someone else's saved game from chapter 12? Surely others have had this problem?

Nope you can't recover a deleted save file unless you had it saved onto an SD card. So he's going to have to play through it all over again. That or you can get to chapter 12 while he's sleeping. Wish you luck.

Sadly, there is no way to recover it... it doesn't have a recycle bin like a computer does.



Add me on Wii U if you want to settle it in Smash

Bad News: You can't get it back

Good News: This is your chance to be dad of the year and play the game up to chapter 12 for him to carry on playing!

Thanks guys, looks like ill have to play it all through again. I had to do it again a few weeks ago when the same thing happened but luckily he'd only got to chapter 4 so wasn't too bad. Its a great game but very easy for kids to do this (it doesnt ask you to confirm the overwrite/delete) and after you've done the same levels 3 times it starts to get annoying!

I know theres a site called wiisaves.com where you can download other peoples saved games but there nothing there for the wii u. I just wondered whether there was a way of using someone else's saved game somehow?

Thanks again

A Dad
