Nintendo promised this morning in their Nintendo Direct presentation that they plan to produce two system updates this spring and summer.
As you can see in the image above, these updates will bring quicker speed to the Wii U user-interface. Users have complained about this one for a while.
The spring update will also bring the Virtual Console to the Wii U. While the full VC catalogue will not be available at launch, they will come to the Wii U in batches. The bad news? You’ll need to re-buy your old games. The good news, however, is that they’ll come at a reduced price. Re-buy NES games for $1.00 and SNES games for $1.50.
