Screens glitching and freezing


For me, it froze 3 times within an hour. Had to turn off the console each time and restart. Glad that it autosaves. After going back to EB Games to try and get another disc, they have nothing left in my area. So, I went back home and deleted the update file to reinstall it. This time, I played for an hour before it froze again. I guess that's progress? Well, I'm still going to get a new disc when they call me and see if that changes anything. This really sucks. I know all of you guys are having a blast with the game, and so was I, but this is unfortunate for me. I'm not sure I have the drive to keep playing if it's going to just freeze on me every so often. Not sure if it's a disc issue, or my Wii U issue. Whatever the case, I think I might just hold off until I get a new disc and stick to Horizon: Zero Dawn on PS4. I was having a lot of fun with that game before I bought Zelda. I love Zelda....and this just blows. Maybe I'll load it up again later and see how long it lasts before freezing again.

The only short-term solution that has worked thus far has been to do a “hard reset” of the Switch – holding down the power button for 15 seconds until it completely shuts down, then turning it back on. Though this fixes the issue briefly, affected Switch owners have claimed that the issue returns shortly afterward and won’t even be fixed with a factory reset of the system.
You can contact Nintendo for a replacement console; however, know that you cannot transfer the data over from your old console
