Consoles always require a system update one in a while, in order to function to its fullest. According to Miyamoto’s statement in an interview with Japanese publication Famitsu, the most recent system update will run a lot smoother and faster.

Miyamoto’s statement:

“With the most recent version update, the system runs a lot better, and while there will continue to be improvements in the future, I think it’s to the point where it’s a convenient thing to have in the living room.”

However, this is about the recent spring update. We’re still waiting to hear about the upcoming summer update. Stay tuned with Zelda Universe for more upcoming Wii U information!

      Probably just some cleaning and improvement of code that will let the system run a bit better, along with some bug fixes and such. Nothing you'll really notice.

    @Loaf, technically the system “works” fine, it’s just a tad bit slow. I’ve been content with the hardware and system menu side of the wii u so far, but an update to improve the speed will definitely be good.

      Yeah that's the original GamePad design. 3DS style analogues, D-Pad and the A,B,X,Y buttons are sat square under them, making the length of the pad shorter (well, it appears to look it anyway). There's no NFC visible, no TV button, and the +/- buttons are below the screen either side of the home button, rather than being on the right.
