Nintendo of Japan has announced that it’s preparing a downloadable fix for the game-breaking Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword glitch that was reported a few weeks ago. Anybody unable to connect their Wii to the internet will be able to send their console directly to Nintendo or an SD card featuring a corrupt Skyward Sword save file.
That’s good of Nintendo
XD your SreenName is Manly and Fruity at the same time XD
That’s good to know. I’ve been a bit scared to get too far in the game just incase.
Nintendo is stepping it up. Good to see them taking care of things.
This is not the first time they did this.
I got a question, what if my file isn’t corrupted? I want to prevent this glitch, so if i download the glitch it will prevent the glitch? Or the fix only works for corrupted files?
I’m guessing it will fix corrupted files and prevent future files from becoming corrupted.
Thanks for the answer, i didn’t know it was a glitch at all, but is good to know that Nintendo is fixing them.
Wonderful news. Didn’t think Nintendo would be able to make a patch to fix this.
How common is this glitch, ive played the game twice, my girlfriend played it once, and we didnt run into it
Apparently if you talk to one of the Goron characters after completing a certain dungeon, you will be unable to save your progress afterwards. That’s all I remember from the report a few weeks ago.
At some point there are like three items you have to collect and if you talk to the Goron before you get all three, stuff breaks.
If you talk to the Goron in Lanayru after you get the Thunder Dragon’s song it apparently causes problems. But fortunately it’s pretty easy to avoid.
at the point where ur getting the song of the hero u choose lanayru or faron or eldin. if u choose lanayru first it wont let u continue the game cos it thinks uve done the other two already so when u go to them nothing happens
I wasn’t even aware there was a glitch at all, I’ve played through and completed the game just fine, didn’t see any bug glitches at all. Unless this is for the 2nd Quest.
Knew they’d release one. It’s a big game for them, afterall.
I’m doing it on hero mode and everything is okay on my end
Who said Nintendo couldn’t patch away that glitch? ;D
Nintendo fanboys “our games are perfect. They don’t need to be patched because there’s nothing wrong with them”
Would be who said Nintendo doesn’t patch games.
Well, this is the first game breaking glitch that I know in a Nintendo game.
There are always glitches, that’s normal. No programmer can make a program without bug, but a good programmer reduces the number to only a few.
And I wouldn’t even know about this one if it wasn’t for the internet. I played trough the game twice (normal and hero mode) and didn’t encounter this glitch. After that I read about it here. So the glitch isn’t even commune.
Lets reformulate that sentence.
“They almost never need to patch because there is almost never something wrong with them that could be considered gamebreaking.”
Don’t forget in Metroid: Other M there was one. If you go back and save at a navigation booth after beating a boss in the sand part of Sector 3, a hatch will be permanently locked, thus breaking the game.
This applies to any gamer with a certain allegiance to a company.
Nice. Now if they’ll only patch Maka Wuhu…
Hey guys. I beat this game a couple days ago. You don’t really need the fix. Just make sure you only talk to the goron the two tine you have too. I literally had zero problems with this game. Don’t be scared to play it. Just make sure you have ample time to get all three song pieces. Then you’re good to go. =]
I haven’t seen any glitch. Must be talking about hacks.
Wow, this would mark the first time Nintendo has ever released a fix for a game.
Not that they’re usually inconsiderate or anything, but cause they never really needed to. Even then, it’s surprising that they would do this despite them saying it’s very difficult for them to release a patch for a Wii game.
I can’t be bothered to send my console in and I am unable to connect it to the Internet. I think I’ll just have backup files.
but you could send an SD card in the mail
I’m guessing this doesn’t happen to everyone. Lots of people have completed the game without issues, and it was also in the hands of reviewers and no one mentioned this or any other glitch at all. Still, it’s always a good thing they are trying to fix it.
If I’ve already gotten the Faron and Eldin sections’ song pieces, will I be fine?
After you get the song piece in Lanayru, just don’t talk to the Goron there again. You have to talk to him when you arrive in Lanayru, but avoid him after that and you’ll be fine. And backup your game just in case
nintendo doing a patch? is this real life?
Yes, it is… now we just have to wait for some DLC <3 Would love some new SSBB characters and new Mario Kart courses : D
Too bad those games don’t have the infrastructure for changing game content.
So what about the rest of the world?

I haven’t been playing it, mostly in part because I want to finish Ocarina of Time 3D but just haven’t had the time. I’m glad to hear they’re doing something about it so that when I do play, I have nothing to worry about!
this makes me hope they will fix that damn mario kart 7 glitch!
This is the first time I’ve ever heard of Nintendo patching a game through a download.
Nice to see Nintendo finally getting with the times.
I wished they fixed the glitch in Other M through a download.
i have no internet so ill just avoid the glitch, thank you though nintendo
I think this represents a positive step for Nintendo. It shows that they are stepping up their online presence. Maybe a glimpse of what will be available for the Wii U?
Let’s hope they patch games in the WiiU but at the same time let’s hope Nintendo doesn’t have to patch often. :D
I guess the folks at Radio Free Nintendo don’t have to argue about Nintendo and downloadable patches anymore.
Nintendo did a good job
That’s great, but damn, Nintendo’s Quality Control are slacking. It shouldn’t have to be an issue.
I’ve got the game for Xmas. What will i actually need to do to download the fix, just make sure my internet connection is on first time i load the game and it does it automatically?
if it’s gonna be a firmware update, then AWESOME!
i’m in Shipyard temple right now then……… it will corrupt?????/ how can i prevent corruption??? HELP ???? =)))
