Sonic Lost World Deadly Six Edition DLC seems broken for Canadians

Numerous reports of the Deadly Six Edition DLC codes for Sonic Lost World not working in Canada have surfaced.


For fans of Sonic in Canada, the release of the Sonic Lost World Deadly Six Edition has been something of a frustrating experience. According to one Wii U Daily reader, when he got home and tried to enter the DLC code to redeem those extra levels, the eShop told him the code was unrecognized. It looks like this issue isn’t exclusive to just a few people, as the whole region of Canada is affected.

Sonic Stadium reports that the issue has affected Canadians because American DLC codes were sold in the region instead of the appropriate regional codes. Sega is aware of the issue however, as Sega representative RubyEclipse left the following message:

Hi guys,

Thanks for your patience – we’re investigating this now. :)

If you’re having the issue and haven’t already, please do send in a ticket to Customer Support so we have you in our records.

If you live in Canada, did you have any problems redeeming your DLC? If you do plan on buying the Deadly Six Edition and live in the affected region, be aware that Sega is currently working on the issue.

Thanks Am Real!

        • andrewjcole

          Americans say eh more than Canadians, because they’re always saying it when they make fun of Canada!

          • Majora’s Mask

            canada and the us is considered americans both in the europe i think you should too expect french canada the rest is like the us and canadians are americans too only us citizens have double that name

          • Jon

            “in the europe”….. lol
            Ture is some places but it depends on where you go. UK, Holland, France, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands and Poland most of the time will not lump Canadians with US. Not sure about the others.

          • Majora’s Mask

            you re not a european so stfu ”ture” guy

          • Jon

            What does that have to do with anything? I know people and have some very good friends from all those countries I listed.

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          I know. I’m just a fan of stereotypes. :P

        • Cena’s Smirk

          I’m Canadian, I say eh when I make a statement and looking to see if anyone else agrees. like, Sonic lost world looks good, eh?

      • andrewjcole

        I say eh as much as I eat shoes.

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          Doesn’t sound like a healthy diet.

  • bizzy gie

    Sucks for Canada.

  • Cyberus

    Should compensate, by adding a patch that dubs all of the voices over with Canadian accents

    s’only fair

    • Jon

      you do realize that those accents are mostly made up by people in the US.

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        What are you talking aboot?

      • Cyberus

        Calm down, eh

      • Untrentide

        You do realize the imaginary accents of Canadians are actually real out in the middle provinces. It’s really bad in the Calgary area.

        • Cena’s Smirk

          I’d say each province has a different accent.

    • andrewjcole

      Smart Americans…

    I hope Nintendo will patch that issue. I mean, it’s an exclusive preorder.It’s very limited in number.But now I wonder is that a typo for one symbol,or a whole code?

  • SmashFinale

    Think they will fix it soon?

  • lonewolf88

    just picked up meh preorder yeh!

  • Mario

    Oh well! They’ll probably fix it!

  • rayan

    i live in canada, but guys if you just create an american username ( another profile on your wii u) and place that in the US region, you can download the dlc via nintendo eshop, then switch back to your Canadian account! :) I’m playing it now and just did the first dlc nightmare level! AMAZING! if anyone has any questions please ask

  • Saul Strange

    Surely the bigger news story is that the whole world has a broken game, right out the box! Trololol :-)

  • Hulkamania

    I live in USA brother… and I got mine with no problem. I love the Nights Into Dreams level.

  • John Madsen

    Did anyone bother to see if the content is available yet in your region see if they haven’t turned on the content servers in your region the code won’t work

  • farrellbr
