Nintendo working on a fix for Skyward Sword glitch

We reported earlier this month that The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword has a nasty glitch involving the “Song of the Hero” quest which, when encountered, prevents you from progressing forward entirely.

Specifically, the bug occurs when you go for the Thunder Dragon Song in the Lanayru Desert first. If you talk to Golo the Goron while there, and upon completing the Thunder Dragon sequence, cutscenes vital to progressing the quest forward will no longer appear.

If this happened to you and you weren’t willing to start all over again, Nintendo is working on two options to get the glitch all fixed up. The first option is to send in your save data to Nintendo, where they’ll take the data, fix the glitch, and send it on back to you.

For the second option, Nintendo says it’s planning on releasing a “program” to address the glitch for those who have their Wii connected to the internet. The company didn’t elaborate on what said “program” means – for all we know, it could just be a patch – but Nintendo promises more information when the fix is ready to be rolled out.

Nintendo didn’t say when to expect the “program” to be released, so if you’re anxious to get back into Skyward Sword and don’t want to have to start over, hit up this link to find out more about sending your save data in for repair.
