The Wii U menu isn't exactly fast - we know that, and thankfully Nintendo does, too. During today's Wii U Direct, the company confirmed that two Wii U system updates will take place this year - one in the spring and another in the summer - with the aim of speeding up the overall system experience.

According to Nintendo, software will launch faster and you'll be able to return to the Wii U menu more quickly, too.

The updates are also likely to lay down the foundations for the Wii U Virtual Console, which was also announced during the broadcast.

Looks like that disgruntled Japanese lady can rest easy.
