See the Wii U's speedier load times in action
Back in January, Nintendo confirmed a system update that will speed up the load times when switching between apps or returning to the Home menu. We can expect this update to arrive sometime in April, but Nintendo isn't making the wait any easier; yesterday the company released a video comparing the time it takes to return to the Wii U menu both before and after the update.
As you can see the load times have significantly been improved. There appears to be a 14-16 second difference in between load times. Hopefully, this update arrives sooner rather than later.
