Iwata makes announcement through Miiverse
Nintendo’s global president Satoru Iwata has taken to Miiverse to share details regarding the scheduled Wii U system updates, as well as future Nintendo Direct broadcasts.
“Hello, this is Satoru Iwata from Nintendo,” he begins. “As we announced in the Nintendo Direct in January, we are going to release two Wii U system updates. One in spring and one in summer. Today, I would like to let you know the status of these two updates.”
He continues, “We are planning to release the spring system update in April, which will improve software launch speeds and loading times when returning to the Wii U Menu.
“We still have tests to do and it will take a little more time until we can release the update. But today, we have prepared a video so you can see how the time to go back to Wii U Menu has improved with the system update, so please take a look at the below video if you are interested.
“In the future, we would like to share announcements about Nintendo Direct events here, so we appreciate your continued attention.
“Lastly, as in other Announcement Communities, please understand that while we read every single comment, we are not able to respond to each and every one directly. Thank you.”
