Video: Wii U Menu Speed Upgrade Cuts Waiting Time By More Than Half

Nintendo shows off forthcoming performance enhancement
We all know that the Wii U isn't the fastest system when it comes to navigating the main user interface, but Nintendo is aware of this fact and is issuing two software updates this spring and summer which will cut down waiting times.
The company has released a video which shows just how much quicker things will be. In the video, a comparison is shown between the current Wii U software and the upcoming update. Dropping back to the home menu from a game currently takes around 20 seconds — the updated system cuts that down to a more bearable 8 seconds.
That's still more time that we'd ideally like to spend waiting, but an impressive upgrade regardless. Will this go some way to making you happy as a Wii U owner? Or were you hoping to see more? Post a comment to tell us.
