You may remember we posted how to avoid Skyward Sword's game-ending glitch, but if that advice came too late then Nintendo of Japan is preparing a solution in the form of a program to fix glitched save files.

Full details aren't available yet but Nintendo will offer two options. Users with internet access will be able to download software that will fix the issue; those living in offline land can send in their SD card or Wii console.

We're not sure when the software will go live, or if it'll work with save files from western consoles, but we'll keep you posted.
