VIDEO: Nintendo's April Wii U Firmware Update Reduces Load Times

See the difference in a before and after comparison

If you own a Wii U, you probably noticed the somewhat lengthy load time that takes place when returning to the Wii U menu. Nintendo aims to fix that with a pair of firmware updates, the first of which is set to arrive in April. Check out a time comparison clip that shows some before and after loading below. 

 

 

Following the big April update, Nintendo will finally be adding Virtual Console to Wii U. I'm more impatient about that than load times, personally. I need something to play on this thing!
