The Wii U’s Spring system update is now live! This update was announced a few weeks ago, but you couldn’t have downloaded the new firmware update until now. This new update promises faster boot-up, loading, and transition times, which is a major change from the 20-30 second wait that have plagued Wii U owners everywhere pre-Spring system update. Additionally, while the Wii U is booting up, you can hold down the B button on the Wii U GamePad to skip directly to the original Wii Menu. Also, download and installs will be much more streamlined, and will download/install in the background even while the Wii U is on stand-by.
