    This is a saved Suspend Point.
    Press SELECT to move it, and to delete it.


    Creating a suspend point in backup-supported games will save not only your current progress, but also your latest save data. This means that restarting from a suspend point in a backup-supported game will overwrite your save data with save data stored in that suspend point.
