The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword has a game breaking bug that involves the Song of the Hero quest. If you a certain song out of order, Link will be stuck in a position that makes it impossible to complete the game.
Nintendo confirmed the bug and a solution on how to avoid it (spoiler alert!) was shared on the Internet. That’s nice and all, but not exactly helpful if you have a corrupted save file.
There’s a fix, says Nintendo. Actually, two of them. If you have a damaged save file you can send your SD card or Wii to Nintendo and they’ll repair the data. The service is free and Nintendo will even pay for shipping (they recommend a COD), but users have to wait at least a week to get hardware back.
If your Wii is connected to the Internet there is an easier solution. Nintendo plans to release a program that repairs broken save files too. When? Nintendo said details will be announced on their homepage at a later date.
