Thanks to last month’s release of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD, a whole new generation of fans is experiencing the series’ opening story for the first time. Hopefully those of you who have been so lucky to try it have gone well – unfortunately others have not been so lucky.
In recent weeks, a number of players have reported an annoying soft-lock error in the game that hinders the player’s progress at the Lanayru Mining Facility. Inside the facility, a section gives the player the task of moving a box in a variety of directions across a path to create a platform to reach a higher area; Unfortunately, some people find that the box is stuck in a difficult position and cannot be moved along the entire path.
The problem has been identified by Reddit user Sawyerqs below
It is certainly a strangely small mistake, and it seems that no one has a clear answer as to why this can happen or what actions a player must take to trigger it. We managed to complete this part of the game without any problems during our own through play, so it only seems to affect selected players.
When they talked about Reddit, the players shared their own experiences with the bug and how they managed to fix it:
“This happened to me too. I have restarted the console a couple of times now and reloaded a storage. I hope they fix this since I am now locked and I really do not want to restart the game.”
“The same thing happened to me. I closed the game completely and then I [finally] took it back to the room it was fixed. “
“Wow, I thought I was missing something, but no, I guess this is really a mistake. It’s a little frustrating to have to get all the way back to this room because of this, but hey, maybe Nintendo will leave this for others. players. “
If you have stumbled upon this article because you are stuck in the same boat as these unlucky players, it seems to be the best course of action to completely close the software and take you back to that particular room. If you are reading this before you reach this part of the game, you may want to make sure that you save regularly in the Lanayru Mining Facility for safety’s sake!
