Last night, pre-loads of Paper Mario: Color Splash started for those who pre-ordered the upcoming Wii U title. But when the downloads stopped, players quickly began to realize that the full game was ready to play immediately, a full two weeks before the title was set to launch in North America. Oops.

Nintendo has since pulled the title from the eShop – but not before countless players started their adventures. It’s safe to say that if you’re worried about spoilers for the title, you should be extra careful online over the next few weeks.

Paper Mario: Color Splash launches in North America on October 7th.
