Earlier today, Nintendo rolled out a system update for the Wii U. The new update will add a couple new features and make some improvements to the user experience.
The biggest change will be the addition of a new Quick Start Menu, which will display the ten most-used apps on the Gamepad screen while the console is booting up. You can then select the software you want to run and it will load alongside the system itself.
Additional changes coming with this update include (taken from a Nintendo press release):
- An improved user setting and selection experience.
- System updates can now be downloaded and installed when the Wii U console is in standby mode.
- Full-screen alerts and notifications can be displayed on the GamePad controller, even if the system is in standby mode. These notifications will tell Wii U owners about new updates, game releases and promotions from Nintendo. Users can adjust how they receive these notifications.
- Easier Nintendo Network ID setup for new users.
- Notifications can now be accessed from the Home Menu as well as the Wii U Menu.
What do you guys think of the new update? I personally could’ve used the easier NNID setup a couple weeks ago, but whatever. Sound off in the comments below.
