Nintendo Teases New Wii U System Update with Comparison Video

If you’ve read my thoughts and opinions piece on the Wii U hardware, you might remember that one of my chief complaints was the length of time it took to navigate menus and exit games and applications.

Nintendo previously promised to correct this in two future updates: One coming in April, and another later in the Summer. The first one is nearly upon us, and so the company has offered the above video to show a side-by-side comparison of how long it takes to return to the main menu from exiting a game.

From what I can tell, the wait time has been reduced to about a third of what it originally was. Much better!
