Wow! Check out these new Wii U system update load times

April update preview directly compares both

The above video has been making the rounds straight from Nintendo, showing off the new and improved system load times for the Wii U April update. The demonstration shows off the astronomical difference (like 15 seconds per transition) between the old Wii U firmware and the new update.

I have to say, I’m extremely grateful for this update. The load times on my Wii U have been excruciatingly long sometimes, to the point where I don’t even feel like going to different menus sometimes. I can’t wait for this.

[Thanks, Nintendaan!]
