During the start of tonight’s Nintendo Direct, Satoru Iwata briefly spoke a bit about issues concerning the Wii U. Even with the latest firmware update, users have still been complaining about system update and program start loading times. Good news: both of these issues will be addressed, Iwata said.
The Nintendo president also talked about Wii U stock availability in Japan. Iwata apologized for shortages surrounding the Wii U Premium Set, but it sounds like consumers will simply need to deal with the situation for now and wait for additional units to arrive.
