Downloadable Fix for Skyward Sword Bug Now Live in Japan, Coming Soon for U.S.

We've written before about the nasty bug that will break Nintendo's latest Legend of Zelda game and Nintendo's plans to address it. Gamasutra reported earlier today that Nintendo opened up a special "Legend of Zelda Data Restoration Channel" to deliver the patch that would fix the problem for Skyward Sword users.

When Kotaku followed up with Nintendo, representatives pointed us a website that indicates a similar downloadable solution is in the works for North American Wii owners. You'll apparently be able to send save data to Nintendo, which is presumably an option for those without internet access.

We'll update this story when a fix goes live in other regions.
