Wii U system update details expected today


The Wii U will be getting a system update next week and details of it are expected later today, possibly during the latest Nintendo Direct.

Nintendo Everything reports that the platform holder will today provide details on April's Wii U system update, so we are presuming that this will happen during the live 'Nintendo Direct' stream taking place from 3pm today.

The new update is said to 'more than halve loading times' when closing a game and returning to the main menu. Another system update, which will also focus on reducing load times, is due later this year.

Hopefully they will announce some games coming out for the Wii U soon . Apart from Lego City Undercover the Wii U has had slim pickings the last few months.

It's a 3DS direct so they'll probably not. But a Direct is coming in Japan so likely will have the release dates for the likes of Pikmin. It's Nintendo so their major titles like that probably will release in the same month here

I agree. There hasn't been many games released for Wii U lately. Games for Wii U seemed to be being cancelled, delayed or release dates not even announced. For example Aliens Colonial Marines, Rayman Legends, Pikmin 3.

I don't know if I have Fire Emblem, but it was completed and sent yesterday, so I'm hoping for the best. Best to have the 3DS charged up anyway.

I want the Worlds Ends With You. But its sold out everywhere. Go figure that Square put it in a Kingdom Hearts Game and then make it impossible to find.

I ordered it from Play-Asia last month but it's sold out now. There are sellers on Amazon selling it New for £18 well worth it if I do say so myself

It is dedicated to the 3DS. The Japanese are getting a WIi U and 3DS one that also will talk about the updated patch next week. So unless Nintendo are gonna do a seperate Wii U one for that

Automatic download of software updates [without even booting the game] will be very handy for me. :)

The update while not necessary is all in the premise of saving time which is good by me, and since we are finally getting Earthbound it seems I WILL need to get a Wii U
