Miyamoto Confirms Next Wii U System Update Is Already In Development

Posted by Damien McFerran

More improvements coming to the Wii U

It's fair to say that the last Wii U System Update was a bit special. The Quick Start menu is fantastic, offering the chance to get into your games with less waiting time. It was certainly encouraging to see Nintendo thoughtfully augment the abilities of the console and add something that is of genuine benefit for the end user.

The good news is that Nintendo isn't done with improving the Wii U yet. In an interview with Time, Shigeru Miyamoto revealed that the next big update is already in the works:

We’re definitely working on additional system updates. But the challenge is that any time you do an update that big, it requires quite a bit of testing. We can’t do those very frequently, but I can say that we’re already working on the next system update.

What features would you like to see in this new update? Unified accounts? Cross-buy capabilities? System-wide achievements? Let us know your sensible — and perhaps not so sensible — ideas by posting a comment below.

The Wii U may not have everyone's support but more and more it has Nintendo's.

The only thing, I could think of atm, would be that account system. I'm starting to get a bit paranoid and am kinda worried, what'd happen to my purchases, if the console died.

Cross-buy for VC. Please.

I really do not want to have to pay another upgrade fee to get my VC games onto whatever comes after Wii U after paying to upgrade from Wii and buying separately on 3DS and then pay another separate upgrade fee to update 3DS versions to the successor of that and... can we see how ridiculous this looks compared to PSN's "buy once, play on any compatible system" classics model yet?

@Tsurii897 yep, the account system is a must.

I hate the fact that most of my purchases from wiiware back in the day got stuck on my brokendown wii. It is archaic and illogical.

I still love the convenience of digital purchases, but just the account system up and running would be great.

"Unified accounts?" Yes!!

Seriously Nintendo, it's 2014. You're getting very little digital revenue out of me until it's fixed.

jordanmarsden said:

System-wide achievements and cross-buy functionality are an absolute must.

Digital games are already ludicrously expensive on the eShop, and I refuse to buy the same game twice just so I can play it on both of my Nintendo systems.

I don't see Nintendo putting much effort into achievements any time soon, but it really does leave a gaping whole in the Wii U's arsenal.

... And a few GameCube VC titles would be nice.

For start: Folders and Quick Start costumization.
Then offcourse Real accounts, like @Tsurii897 sad im really scared if console die. Maybe that is not issuse in some countries like UK but in some is even hard to manage to get WiiU its kinda impossible to send to repear or whatever.

Rest are mentoned but not urgent :)

Meanwhile, link your Club Nintendo account to your NNID (from the eShop), this way you'll ever see all your purchases in the Club Nintendo.
If your Wii U get broken or stolen someday, you would submit it to Nintendo.

BooJoh

BooJoh said:

I personally think system-wide achievements is absolutely not a necessity for Nintendo. Most of their first party titles have achievement systems already, but they're custom tailored to each game and it's so much more satisfying that way than just having a system banner pop up over your game saying "achievement unlocked!" If anything I would be in favor of making Miiverse stamps an account-wide thing so you can use them anywhere on Miiverse and mix and match instead of only using them in posts from that game.

Vertically scrollable icons/list (kinda like windows explorer) to better organize games and apps and not windows or pages. And add folders with it.

SCAR392 said:

The connections for more fleshed out account systems are there, they just don't do anything(yet). The NNID is your account, it just doesn't have any user accessible data associated with it, aside from Miiverse.
The NNID IS tracking purchases, it's just not transferable/managable at this time.

Nintendo did say you'd be able to download things to your Wii U from the eShop via your smartphone or 3DS.

Other features could be added. They could have an achievment system alternative, such as play coins.

I could see cross-buy happening. There's an abundance of 3DS games and VC that are on both, so I think it's just a matter of time.

Just remember that Nintendo announced Miiverse for 3DS in 2011, and we didn't get it until the end of 2013. We'll probably be getting another big update, by the end of this year.

Save backups, that's what I absolutely need on my Wii U >_<;

My external HardDisk failed twice in a year and I lost lots of save datas. Problem is that it's very hard and complicated to make a backup copy of save files for downloaded games cause the Wii U allow only copy of software, updates and saves all togheter.

It would be nice the option to be able to copy only save files from HardDisk to Console or the possibility to hold the software on the external HDD and make it read the save files from consoles.

  • A photo & video editing channel

A photo and video editing channel would be cool, but personally, I don't see why it'd be necessary on any console... It was a nice distraction on the Wii, but other than that, it didn't see much use.

  • Wii games load straight from Wii U menu without having to go into Wii mode first

Agreed.

  • Folders

Folders aren't an issue for me and they weren't an issue before they released them on the 3DS, but I can understand why people want them. I use them because it takes less time to organize, but again, it didn't bug me before they were a thing.

  • post to miiverse straight from the home screen without having to go to the miiverse site first

I don't understand this... A lot of Nintendo's titles allow this. Also, I wouldn't want a gimped Miiverse just to make a post. When I go on Miiverse, I look at other posts as well as write my own.

  • In-game notifications

I don't mind the Home Button flashing. I miss it when I'm in the zone, but at the same time, people can't pester me constantly with notifications. On top of that, it'd likely have Miiverse integration and popular artists' games would be interrupted by endless Yeah! Bombing.

  • chat and photo channel in the home menu so that you don't have to quit your current game to use them

By chat, I assume you mean the Wii U Chat. I also assume you mean for them to update it to accomodate IM as well as Party Chat because suspending a game to do a video chat is not my cup of tea. And again, I don't see the need for a photo channel on the Wii U.

  • VC Suspend points 'in the cloud' and shareable between Wii U and 3DS versions

Partially agreed. I don't want a ton of stuff in the Cloud, but there'd be no other way to sync it, I suppose.

  • TVii in Europe

Agreed.

  • Wii VC games

No. The Wii U is backwards compatible to the Wii. Just buy your Wii games and slap 'em in. Gamecube VC is more like it, but on the other hand, GameCube HD remakes could be cool. I love Wind Waker HD. And, while I still have my Wii, I'd gladly buy an HD remake of a GCN game if it had more features (which is a guarantee thanks to the GamePad and Miiverse).

  • Disc install

Eh. To be honest, I don't want this one. I understand games like Lego City would load faster or something, but on the same token, I'd have to give up memory so I could actually install it. As much space as the Wii U discs hold, that wouldn't be something I'd want implemented. I want Nintendo to keep making their games work smoothly without the need for a disc install.

AcesHigh73 said:

For me, there's a number of things that I'd like to see, but only three that I REALLY need:

1 — The ability to actually play Wii games on the Wii U GamePad. We can already 'watch' them on the GamePad screen, but I want to 'control' them with it too! How cool would it be to play the likes of the Super Mario Galaxy games off-TV? My youngest daughter meanwhile, would love to play Kirby's Adventure away from the TV - a domain that her older sister dominates ;-)

2 — Another thing that'd be cool is for retail game icons to remain on the GamePad homescreen when it's disc is removed — it'd be great to see all your game icons in one place, both digital and retail.

3 — This one is a very small request, but like one or two readers have already mentioned, folders really are a straight forward implementation and absolutely essential for those of us with tons of eShop/VC icons cluttering up our homepage's. Especially if, as per my second point, those icons were to include 'all' of our retail games too.

Here's hoping!

Given how well the quick start menu works (I've turned it off because every time I turned the system on it told me the menu was not ready yet) they need to take all the time they can on an update with features. Who knows what will happen if folders were to appear?

Who knows maybe they will write a change log that is more than "stability improvmantz" (keep trolling them, it is a shame as there are actual changes that are meaningful, remember the LAN speed boost?).

To people suggesting cross buy, there is no update needed. The eShop is already equipped to offer users specific offers based on purchases in thier NNID. See the Pullblox World promo. It just requires a change of mindset from Nintendo (which is gradually happening).

I would personally like to see a better offline mode than having to delete all connection settings (if you don't it will try to connect to those every time you boot up or close software).

@BakaKnight Wait, you can't move saves on their own to the NAND? I was under the impression you could. Irritating. Saves on their own on the NAND are the best backup you'll get currently because if the NAND breaks the external drive will be useless anyway (as a repair will be a different system). Edit: If Nintendo is keen on not having end users with public key encrypted saves (as these are easier to hack) then a cloud based solution linked to the NNID is an idea.

Dedicated looking for players rooms on Miiverse, since you removed that option, miiverse has been kinda dead for me.
Stability, performance improvments
Nintendo TVii in Europe
Integrated games catalogue, to keep track of what games you have completed, and at what %.
No region lock.
Pikmin 3 Online Play for battle mode!

Those would be my top priorities. I wouldn't mind seeing a return of Everybody votes channel, the mii contest channel, news and weather channel.

@Starwolf_UK You can delete the actual game content and then copy from hdd to internal. No idea what happens if it is then reinstalled to the hdd as it has not been something I have needed yet.

4) Stream video from Local PC library with support of .srt subtitles
5) Skype Support

1) Cross-platform purchases (ie, buy the game, but get it on both 3DS and WiiU)
2) In relation to the above, credit for any games you have on both systems.
3) Folders on the home screen (like the 3DS allows you to create)
4) Credit for any games that are lost when merging two eShop accounts that have purchased the same game (currently the one copy of the game just disappears).

Bonus) An awesome capability would be the ability to let others "borrow" your games. For 24 hours you can let someone play the same game you own given the condition that you can't play it during that same time period. It'd be a great way to let people try something new that doesn't necessarily have a demo available. This would only apply to digital content, of course.

I'm fine with whatever they want to do. Cross-buy would shut a lot of people up - it does not really matter much to me, but it would be cool. I'd like a notification window when a friend sends me a message, and maybe a way to send messages without launching the MiiVerse app.

2) E-shop buys linked to the user and not the console

5) Skype!
6) would be amazing to "emulate" 3ds title on WiiU, by just streaming the upper screen contents to the tv or by running the purchased games in a real emulator.....3ds which could also act as a 2nd pad... this would move so many 3ds owners in purchasing a wiiU too....

@AcesHigh73 problem Solved? It's just create more problems!
We're talking about the Wii Remote here. A device that tracks movement in three dimensions. There's no way a tocuhscreen or analogue stick could replicate that, as they only track two dimensions. But say they only do it for Mario Galaxy, then you would still need three hands. One for the left stick, one for pressing A or whatever would make you jump, and one for either moving a cursor with an analogue stick (which is already horrible) and awkwardly shaking it every five seconds, or constantly blocking the GamePad-screen. It would ruin the entire game!
Now I don't want to sound pessimistic, but when you think it through, you'll find SMG was MADE for the Wii Remote. No other controller could replace it.

Updates Wii U NEEDS ASAP:
-Def needs a gmail app, music app, and a facebook app, linked with MiiVerse of course (and/or fix the web browser. It's irritating having the pages unnecessarily refresh, just because you clicked on another tab)
-Upgrade the TV Remote feature to have an 'OK' button and a 'Recorded TV' feature, since they are basic on all cable providers remotes.
-Provide a list of all keyboards that work with the Wii U
-Folders option, just like on the 3DS
-Cross buy for VC games.

One thing I'd like to see in a future update would be a Wii U to Wii U transfer tool. I'd like to upgrade from my Basic Set to any kind of Deluxe Set. Being a huge Zelda fan, it was hard for me to miss out on getting the Wind Waker Deluxe bundle, while my friends were all buying it. I've also run out of space to store my game data, so I have to store everything else in an external hardrive. But at the same time, I'm pretty much stuck with the set I have now cuz I don't wanna lose any of my data. Especially not my NNID, since I've managed to get quite a large amount of followers on Miiverse.

So yeah, Wii U to Wii U transfer tool would be great.

@xj220_afiles That's the case with new games, yes.

Even if you do want to bring new digital games into this, many brand new games on PSN have cross-buy either with PS3/Vita or PS4/Vita, while some of the very same titles don't on Nintendo (1001 Spikes for example.)

Make the OS use half as much RAM. It would be great if TVii and Miiverse could be layered like as in being transparent with them taking the other half of the available RAM. I would also like a way to take screen grabs without interrupting a game and store more than one of them temporarily. When using the search button, I would like to be able to use the right stick to move backward or forward in the search bar. Most of all OUR ACCOUNTS WITH OUR GAMES TIED TO THEM!

Having the 3DS sync with the Wii U so that you can send postable data to Miiverse.

A longer range for the controller. I hate how you have to keep it within about 15 feetish of the console. I want 50 or 60 feet.

Unified, detached from system accounts.

Folders.

On Tv screen notifications (i.e. when you receive an invite or message while on CoD ghosts online)

Cross-buy features

Yes, yes, yes.
Agree completely with what this person wrote.

Only thing that Nintendo platforms don't need is achievements. That and micro transactions/DLC is the worst design invention in the past 10 years.

Hm, yes. Only big thing I can think of (unless they can speed loading further, but I doubt it...and honestly, it's in a decent spot right now anyway) are a better account system, like others have said. Cross-Buy/cloud saves would be great too. Also, folders.

1. I want a unified Wii and Wii U menu (I'm guessing they won't because of all the issues like not being able to justify the upgrade charges for VC games and other Wii emulation problems)
2. I want that unified channel to emulate a Wiimote and classic controller with the gamepad or pro controller so I can play some of the better Wiiware games.
3. Add every platform from Wii VC + Amiga + Dreamcast + Saturn
4. I want a single emulator for the VC instead of downloading one with each ROM.
5. Folders would be nice
6. Multiple profiles for a single user account that can be switched inside games. (The Wii's library had better options for multiple users than Wii U currently has)
7. An app that tallies up your Mii's achievements on both the Wii and Wii U
8. Activity log to rank the games based on play time
9. A suggestion box for new games that you can only use when you register a game.
10. Plaza to show more games at once and to filter out spam a bit better.

I'd like achievements, and the friends app to be intergrated onto the home menu so all you need to do is press a button to go to the left and the friends screen would be pre-loaded, like the ps3, because it takes too long just to see who's online!
