The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Bug Fix Now Available

Almost as easy as catching a bug with a butterfly net.

We previously reported a game breaking bug in Link's newest adventure, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.  We can now report that a fix is available for download in the form of a Wii channel called the "Zelda Data Restoration Channel."

This may seem like a strange way to resolve the issue, but the Wii's online service is vastly different from its current gen competitors, forcing Nintendo to address the fix without a standard patch.  While strange, in practice it's very simple to apply the fix.  Download the fix channel from the Wii Shop Channel, then boot up the fix channel and it will guide you through the rest of the process.

It's much simpler than the other provided offline alternative, which is sending the data in for repair. As the earlier referenced article states, the bug is very easy to avoid.  For those unable to connect their Wii to the internet, prevention truly remains the best cure.

EarthBound Review Rewind

Remember that silly old trope in teen movies where the nerdy “plain Jane” character magically becomes super attractive just by removing her glasses? It was a bit like that with EarthBound- an RPG that was largely ignored when released on the Super NES in its twilight years. Nintendo’s ill-conceived ad campaign telling the player that “this game stinks” didn’t do it any favors either. The game’s overtly humorous kid-friendly facade was unusual for its time and quickly written off as ugly and boring by all but the most accepting of RPG fans. But thanks to the positive praise in gaming forums years later, it picked up steam and eventually became lauded as one of the best on the Super NES. Much like the bespectacled character in every 90s teen comedy, it was as if EarthBound removed its glasses. Nothing was different about it- just our perception of what was already there.
