Wii U System Update 5.1.1 is Now Available
Posted by Thomas Whitehead
Minor enhancements and stability ahoy!
Just a short amount of time ahead of a Hyrule Warriors Nintendo Direct and in the midst of Nintendo Network maintenance, Nintendo has released a system update for the Wii U; version 5.1.1 is now available in Europe and North America, and appears to be one of those lovely stability updates.
It's a small download, and the official changelog brings the hype — well, not really — with its promise of mysterious user improvements and even more stability.
Further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments have been made to enhance the user experience
One of our readers (thanks Greg L) has reported TVii issues in North America at the time of writing — which we've verified — but this is more than likely due to disruption from the Nintendo Network maintenance highlighted above. It seems Nintendo is busy behind the scenes right now, even if there's no discernible enhancement in this latest system update; we shouldn't complain, as it's barely been a couple of weeks since update 5.1.0, which added Wii U to Wii U transfers and new eShop browsing options.
Can you handle all of this stability that Nintendo is serving up on the Wii U through these system updates?
