If you’re one of the people experiencing the game stopping glitch at a door in Sector 3 of Metroid: The Other M, then Nintendo has a few solutions you can use to avoid, or fix the problem. This glitch happens after you fight the Space Pirates in Sector 3 to obtain the Ice Beam and continue on to the door at the end of the room. If you defeat the spiked, purple legged enemies, unlock the door, and then backtrack to the room where you obtain the Ice Beam, the door won’t open for anything, making your game end there.To avoid this glitch, simply don’t backtrack, and continue on with the game.
Still having troubles with the glitch? Simply send in an SD card with the saved file to Nintendo and they’ll fix it for you. Add this game stopper as another reason for Other M critics to hate?
