    New Wii U Update Now Live

    Or am i wrong? Can someone confirm?

    EDIT: It's confirmed!

    Special Thanks to: The Detonator, tsukichild and Death.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    From Nintendo:

    Version 2.1.0 U

    Released: December 4, 2012

    Further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments have been made to enhance the user experience.


    Start your Wii Us ppl!

    The New Patch is estimated to be around 593 MB (which is pretty big, hence ppl estimating it is the TVii Patch)

    Update: There is a New Update for the 3DS as well.

    The Sonic All-Stars Racing Transformed Patch is supposed to be available in the next hour.


    NEW EDIT: For People Wondering since it's been a while... This is a topic about the 2nd Wii U update which is the 2.1.0 U.

    People are speculating it's probably the TVii Patch or the Long Loading, Frezzing issues Patch OR a Both of them.

    I doubt it's TVii, as I am fairly certain that isn't being released in Australia. It looks like it'll take a while, but luckily it can download in the background. I guess it's back to ZombiU for me. :P

    Several paragraphs of "do not turn off the power; it'll take awhile" isn't really my idea of news, sadly.
