Today during the Nintendo Direct conference, Satoru Iwata detailed the update schedule for the Wii U. Iwata mentioned that two upgrades will be coming for the console, one in the spring and one in the summer. These updates will bring the Virtual Console to Wii U, as well as offer improved software launch times and load times. Iwata reiterated that Nintendo remains committed to its customers who supported the Wii U early on, so the company wants to work out these early launch issues as quickly as possible. No specific dates were given for each update, but the spring quarter ends in March so that means we’re less than two months away from that update.
