Message: “If you continue from this suspend point, your game's save data will be overwritten" or "If you continue from a saved suspend point, your in-game save data will be overwritten"

Description:

The following message is displayed on the HOME Menu: “If you continue from this suspend point, your game's save data will be overwritten” (Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System) or "If you continue from a saved suspend point, your in-game save data will be overwritten" (Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System).

What to Do:

  • This is not an error message nor does it indicate that there is a problem with the console.
  • In addition to suspend points, the games that included in-game save options on the original Nintendo Entertainment System console and original Super Nintendo Entertainment System console will also have this same functionality on the Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System and Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System consoles. These games are:

  • Excitebike
  • The Legend of Zelda
  • Kirby's Adventure
  • Zelda II - The Adventure of Link
  • StarTropics
  • FINAL FANTASY

Important:

  • Although in-game save options are available for these games, you will still need to save your progress to a suspend point. Otherwise, the following message will be displayed: “If you continue from a saved suspend point, your in-game save data will be overwritten.”
  • Once save data is overwritten or deleted, it cannot be recovered.
  • We do not have additional information on the individual in-game save functionality for these titles. However, you are welcome to consult the game manuals online.
