Skyward Sword 'patch' is an entire fricken Wii Channel

Destructoid: Well... that's one solution, I suppose.

To recap, Nintendo acknowledged the game-breaking bug in Skyward Sword and started making plans to correct it. You could mail your hardware to the company directly (ick!), or you could wait for a promised patch. Now, Wii games aren't exactly patch-friendly thanks to the console's infrastructure, but when one the company's marquee titles is on the line, you know Nintendo will bend over backwards to FIX IT.

Available now in Japan is the "Zelda Data Restoration Channel." That's right. An entire channel to fix one little thing. You run the channel and follow the instructions, then your save data will be corrected. I'm going to assume that this is a one-time deal and that you don't have to keep the channel installed once the patch is applied.

I cant see what's wrong with it! Download the channel, patch the save, delete channel, profit!

They need to get their facts right, Nintendo never said anything about the need to mail the hardware! They said, until they release the channel, to Email the save to them. They would fix it and send it back! Just ranting about the Wii because it's the Wii, doesn't get Destructoid anywhere...

yeah not mention the fact that this isnt an actual patch but a program to fix the save file, on other games you might get patched but if the game was broken you still need to restart everthing.

Most likely the real patch to eliminate the issue could come on a future firmware update, like it was done with Metroid Other M
