Nintendo has released a major system update for Wii U, bringing the firmware version up to 5.0.0.

One of the major features introduced in today’s update is the quick start menu. Players can now more easily begin playing games without having to encounter the menu screen. Other changes/additions include new GamePad Alerts that can be displayed on the GamePad when the Wii U is turned off, the ability to install system updates after they’re finished downloading while the console is in Standby, and more.

New Features:

  • Wii U to Wii U System Transfer
    • Users can now transfer (move) all software and data from one Wii U to another
    • A “System Transfer” option has been added within System Settings
    • Click here for additional information on this feature

Changes to Nintendo eShop:

  • Users can now navigate the Nintendo eShop using a Wii Remote, Wii U Pro Controller, or Classic Controller

Improvements to system stability and usability:

i know im late to the game here, but i just updated a couple days ago. anyone find it annoying that you can receive messages on the gamepad while the system is off, but as soon as you check the message, it turns on the system?
