Similar to the incident with Metroid: Other M, a game breaking glitch has been discovered in the Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. This glitch is centered around the quest involving the Thunder Dragon. As reported by Zelda Informer, below are the steps that are required to trigger this glitch.
- At the beginning of the Song of Hero Quest, go to Lanayru Desert to obtain the Thunder Dragon’s song.
- Speak with Golo the Goron, who is located in the Lanayru Mine.
- Receive the Thunder Dragon’s song, by completing the Thunder Dragon event.
- Before heading to the volcano or forest areas, speak with Golo the Goron again, in the Lanayru Mine.
By following these steps, the volcano and forest events WILL NOT TRIGGER. If this happens, you will NOT be able to proceed through the story, and you will either have to boot up and older save file, or restart the game. Also, this glitch will not occur if you complete the Fire and Water song events first. Talking to Golo the Goron in the Lanayru Cave will also not trigger this glitch.
- My thoughts exactly, Picard.
If you are dead set on completing the Thunder Dragon’s song first, do not talk to Golo until you have obtained all three songs. Of course, collecting the other two songs first is the safest bet. As of now, Nintendo has no other solution to solve this glitch, other than ensuring that you not follow the steps listed above. As of now, it is unsure if Nintendo will release a patch to fix the game, or if they will offer a “save replacement program”, similar to the one they offered with Metroid: Other M, where Nintendo allowed players to send in their save file (on an SD card), or their Wii console in order to have their save file fixed. For those who do not remember, Metroid: Other M had a similar glitch, where backtracking to a specific room after obtaining the Ice Beam prevented players from continuing the game.
