Nintendo has announced that if you were one of the unlucky few who experienced the game crippling Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword bug found in the Song of the Hero quest you can call 1-800-255-3700 to have Nintendo repair your saved game. Nintendo went on to say they will be releasing a program that will allow you to repair the game save yourself; all you will need is Internet connectivity.
If you aren’t quite that far into the game Nintendo offered the following advice on how to avoid running in to the infamous bug.
“To complete the Song of the Hero quest, the player must visit three different locations to collect three dragon songs. To prevent the situation where the game can no longer be completed from happening:
Complete the quests in Faron Woods or Eldin Volcano first.
Do not go to the Lanayru Desert first.
If the Thunder Dragon’s Song from the Lanayru Desert has already been collected first, do not talk to a Goron named Golo until the other songs have been collected. (Golo is found at the entrance to Lanayru Mine.)”
