This may be true, but it should also be noted that Extended Maintenance will continue from 1PM (PT)/4PM (ET) to 7PM (PT)/10PM (ET).

Regardless, it's going to take a little longer.

I honestly doubt they'll be in HD.

They already are, I think. F-Zero, Kirby, Punch-Out!!, and Balloon Fight are as HD as they're gonna get.

I don't like to dash your hopes guys but seeing how Nintendo works I doubt we'll get the update today. Nintendo had a tendency to wrap up things usually close to the end.

By the way, finishing a service maintenance doesn't mean that Nintendo needs to start the next step rightaway. I think they will start the next step (April update) tomorrow. So don't wait for it today cuz you might be disappointed.

@Cheaptrick I am well aware of Nintendo's track record, but it doesn't hurt to be optimistic.

That said, I wouldn't be too upset if I didn't see an update until Saturday. As it stands, I won't have the time to give my Wii U the attention it deserves for a good week-and-a-half! (I know, it's sad )

I am in an Eastern Time Zone so I anticipate that it will be released either late night for us or early morning. Nintendo will most likely release at this time to reduce traffic which will slow down the update (like when the Wii U launched and everyone was trying to update their consoles at the same time). I do not think that maintenance has anything to do with the update but rather it has more to do with the uploading of Virtual Console titles for tomorrow and the linking of the Wii Shop Channel (from Wii Mode) and the Wii U eShop (in order to make Shop Channel to eShop paid transfers), they might also be turning the eShops off until the update rolls through in order to minimize bandwidth issues with the update. Of course this is all just my speculation.

I'm sure that Nintendo will release the update soon. I'm crossing my fingers for Kirby Super Star and Link to the Past.

Is there any news on the initial batch Wii U VC games, the trailer showed some games but did not say when they would be released and which would come at launch.

Oh no, we have to wait a whole extra day!? OH THE HUMANITY, MY LIFE IS MEANINGLESS!!!

But in all seriousness, I don't mind waiting just a little longer. The current loading speed doesn't really bother me anyway.

Avian fact of the week: The Moa, an extinct relative of ostrichs and emus that inhabited New Zealand, was the tallest bird that ever lived at 12 ft tall (3.6 m). It was also the only known bird to have no wing structure.

If you're familiar on how Nintendo works then you should expect the update by tomorrow morning around 9-10 AM central.

Well I leave on a trip in like 9 hours so I guess I won't be downloading the update until I get back in a week. I suppose it doesn't make much difference, I wouldn't have really had time to enjoy it yet. Was tempted to just bring my Wii U with me so I get to enjoy the VC launch (as well as Rayman Challenge levelsif they hit US this week) but it would be extra luggage on the airplane.

Don't worry, Wii U VC. I will be back to play with you in only a week.

Doubtful. He would have posted that along with this info.
The update will go live worldwide.

Maybe there is a chance the VC games will come after midnight? It happened with 3DS VC launch and the ambassador games, they both appeared after midnight.
