Nintendo has released a full Wii channel in order to fix the game-breaking bug that can be found in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. All you need to do is download the Zelda Data Restoration Channel from the Wii Channel section of the Wii Shopping Channel, boot the channel up, and follow the instructions.
is this gonna come on north america because i checked right now and i dont see it there?
Additional Note: I think it’s gonna come tomorrow because NA Wii Shop gets new software every Thursday.
Hero mode has the bug too?
I believe Hero Mode is where the bug occurs most often.
I was trying to get the bug in hero mode, I did exactly as they say it happens, and i did not get it. I thought it didn’t happen on hero mode. That’s weird.
Why the fuck would you try to get it?
I dunno, maybe he/she wanted to get it to see what happens. I am rather confused about it, I can’t remember what it does or how to get it, so I might try to get it, then just turn the Wii off an not save it so it should be fine. So how do u get it again?
you have to do the hero’s song in a certain order.
You have to do the get the Thunder Dragons portion of tr Hero Song first and speak to the Goron Golo twice. Once before getting the song and again after. Then it locks Faron Woods and The Eldin Volcanareas makingit impossible to proceed in the game any further.
is this just in Japan?
Funny, I never encountered the bug but it never hurts to be safe I suppose.
As they always say “better safe than sorry.” also “its better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.”
the bug was triggered in the order u took when it came to the song of hero going to the dessert first triggered it
Only if you talk to Golo the Goron again after learning the Thunder Dragon’s piece of the Song of Hero.
I took Faron to Eldin then Lanayru. Most went to Lanayru first to get the Hylian Shield. Which my brother did but didn’t get into the glitch.
No se porque me da la impresion de que voy a dejar el canal en la Wii porque se ve bonito…
jeje si, está muy bonito el canal…
que buenaa ondaa!!! hablan español!!! =D
¡ Ha de cuenta que sí hablamos español meros cuerdas !
Jajaja pensé que era el único por aquí.
somos varios xd
Oh ya no me siento el unico de habla española :)
De que bug hablan chicos? o_o
Soy tan guapo
Yeah! Comunidad hispana FTW!
hm, a channel eh? now if only they did this for brawl, you know. to add more characters and shit.
You can do that, but it requires homebrew.
Also Brawl Minus
A whole channel for a single bug in a single game?
Well, the bug is kind of serious because when you get it, you can’t continue on with the game. And how fun is it to play 20-30 or even more hours into the game and then can’t continue on with the story? So the channel is actually pretty important.
also after putting 25+ hours to get to the Song of Hero part.
This is the only way Nintendo can fix the bug because Wii discs don’t support patching. So, it’s a work-around.
Cuando regrese a SA Town lo arreglaré.
Ok, well done Nintendo. But the question is:
WHERE THE HELL WAS THIS WITH METROID: OTHER M’S GAME BREAKING GLITCH???
The answer to that is they don’t care enough about it. They only care enough about Zelda because of how much $ they get from it. I’m still salty about Nintendo not celebrating the Metroid 25th Anniversary.
not only that it also their biggest game ever created why the care so much for it. Metroid Other M is a whole lot shorter.

They should put more channels for more content

So…Nintendo couldn’t just do a normal update? They had to make an entire channel to update one video game?
The whole issue is really an aesthetic one. Sure I’ll look forward to when on Wii U a patch can just be a quick, no-nonsense procedure, but this is a great way for Nintendo to handle it at the moment. If only this happened with Metroid: Other M instead of that shipping nonsense.
still waiting for my zelda:ss order to come! ;-!
Glad to see Nintendo move so quickly on this one.
At least Nintendo makes up for it’s mistakes unlike Phony. (I am not a Sony hater btw. I’m just mad that they had no make up for what happened with PSN and how over priced the PS3 first was but now it’s half the price.)
Attention North America: The channel is now available on the Wii Shop Channel.
The Zelda data restoration channel……
Just rolls off your tounge.
Lol but I’m glad they fixed this so quickly!
Lol. Good point. the channel name is rather silly.
