    Nintendo has released a save fix for a game breaking bug, it made further progress in the game impossible if done in a certain way. Any Japanese Skyward Sword owners can have their saves fixed by downloading a channel patch from the Wii Store. No news of when USA/Canada and Europe will get their patch so far.

    Further details of the channel patch can be found here.

    It's weird that this game would have such a bug, but since it does, at least Nintendo has an official way of getting past it now, even if it's an arduous task. I didn't know they could do such a thing on Wii.

    Well they could on the DS.
    It's a simple save file edit, nothing more.

    On a side note, another glitch I find kinda funny.

    Lol, we'll probably have to start a petition for it. I can't wait to see this added to Operation Rainfall.

    "Trololol! You made it into the dragon's territory?!"
    Nintendo was obviously trolling us.

    This is a simple save file fix.
    You cannot add anti-piracy with that.

    I wonder how many people will miss the point that this just fixes the save file and touches nothing else...

    Because of that.
    People assumed Nintendo would patch the game itself.

    I personally feel better using an Official NIntendo patch for my save.

    if only skyrim save patch could be that easy. hackers (as presented in game dev story) are better at times than devs themselves
