Wii U update to cut down load times significantly; 3DS save-transfer update released

NEWS | ? Comments |

Author: Peter Grimm  

Loading times really stink. That is the truth, and by merit of this truth, many Wii U owners have been driven up a wall by the lengthy amount of time it takes to move from a game to the console’s main menu. But soon, those instances of forced-wall-ascending will be a thing of the past.

Next month, Nintendo will provide the Wii U with a much needed system update, which, among other things, will cut down the loading time required to get to the main menu considerably. As the video below shows, the wait will be nearly two-thirds less than it is now. 

That’s cause for celebration, if you ask me.

In related news (that is, related to Nintendo hardware updates), the Big N has released an update for the 3DS. Along with improvements made to the 3DS’s ability to download games while in sleep mode, the update enables the handheld to do so without having to exit the eShop. 

But the primary feature of this update is a nifty ability to transfer existing save data from a physical game to its digital downloadable version (assuming you have both versions). The only downside to this otherwise neat feature is that it you can’t transfer the other way as well. 

One last (and important) thing about the 3DS update: it has been discovered that some users have experienced trouble trying to update, meeting with error messages that prevented them from doing so. Nintendo of America has since responded, saying that if that happens, turn off the 3DS and then turn it on again while holding the L, R, A and Up buttons.
