It recently came out that The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword contains a game-breaking glitch that can prevent further progress in the story if a sequence of events unfolds in a very specific way. Nintendo isn't known for its post-release support on the Wii -- in fairness, Wii games have a tendency to be relatively bug free -- but there have been patches released on the console in the past to correct problems.
The company's Japanese website has been updated to confirm the existence of the Zelda glitch, with the promise of a fix to come soon (via Andriasang). Those who have had their saved game affected by the glitch will have two options: a downloadable fix beamed straight to your console or, for those without an Internet connection, a mailed in SD card or console which Nintendo will apply the fix to and then send back. There's no word yet on how the fix will be implemented outside of Japan, but we've checked in with Nintendo of America for clarification.
