Nintendo's Wii U Will Boot Even Faster This Summer

May 08, 2014

It's not clear when exactly Nintendo plans to unleash this little speed-related Wii U boon -- Joystiq says it's heard this summer -- but the video above indicates the benefits could be considerable: a system update that delivers a quick start menu that appears the moment you tap the Wii U GamePad's power button.

Better still, the applications you can launch now load notably faster. Joystiq notes the original simulated demonstration showed New Super Mario Bros. U loading in about 19 seconds, whereas in the the demo above, it takes just 14 seconds.
