Good news! There’s a Wii U system update that you can download right now! Unfortunately, the bad news is that it seems that there is nothing substantial about this particular update, as it will focus on minor background tweaks for the system itself. Nintendo issued one of its usual vague responses about update 4.0.2, stating, “Further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments have been made to enhance the user experience.” Please note that this Wii U update is mandatory, so online functions, like the eShop, will be disabled until the update is installed.
Personally, I’m looking forward to whenever the 3DS update goes live, which will tie your account balance between Wii U and 3DS together and offer the Miiverse on the handheld. Are you downloading the update? Are you excited for new updates coming soon? Sound off in the comments below!
