ATTENTION All Mario Kart 8 owners!

Mario Kart 8 autosaves and doesn't tell you when it does so. Turning off the Wii U while it's autosaving could erase all of your progress.

Please go into the home menu and close out your software, it's much safer.

I learned this the hard way, I had 90 stamps, 3 stars on all cups, all characters, and just about every vehicle part with the exception of the gold glider. Now I don't have any of that anymore. Gotta do it all over again. D:

Who would ever turn off a system while the software is still running?

I did all the time in Wii backwards. I just saved first

My thoughts exactly. I've always went back to the home menu and took the game out before turning the system off.

Oh, boy - better not ask why people would do absolutely stupid stuff on a Nintendo console. You'll get marked as a Nintendrone.

Deus Ex Wii U is $20-$55 more expensive than other versions, but it only didn't sell because Wii U owners don't like third-party games. - king_madden

Considering pretty much ever Mario Kart ever made has auto saved... I don't think we really need a PSA.

Well, its a good thing I don't even play Mario Kart 8 anymore.

Without exaggeration, I can honestly say this is the best thing I've played this whole year, and its only a demo!

Not to mention that every game reminds you not to do so anyway.

I'm pretty sure it only says that when the game is saving, not at all times... that'd be silly otherwise.

It doesn't say anything while it autosaves, because it autosaves in the background.
