It's virtually here, folks!
During the recent Nintendo 3DS Direct presentation, globally broadcast last Wednesday, exclusive new details for the Wii U Spring System Update were revealed. Increased Wii U Operating System loading times, the ability to move data from one external USB storage device to another, and a standby function that allows digital content to be downloaded and installed even after the Wii U system is "turned off" are just a handful of the improvements that will be included in tomorrow's Wii U Spring System Update. For detailed information about the Wii U Spring System Update, be sure to check out the list we created.
In addition to these much-needed improvements, it was also announced that the Wii U Virtual Console service would become available "the day after the system update." According to Nintendo's Current Network Status web page, a period of "Extended Maintenance" is scheduled for the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS eShops on Monday, April 22nd. The extended maintenance is scheduled to last from 1PM PST through 7PM PST. Furthermore, the games listing on Nintendo of America's website shows that Excitebike is scheduled to be released for the Wii U Virtual Console on Tuesday, April 23rd.
Excitebike is just one of the many Wii U Virtual Console titles that were shown during last week's Nintendo 3DS Direct. A list of other known titles will be offered at some point "after the service launches." Keep in mind that some of the below titles are offered as part of the Wii U Virtual Console Trial Campaign.
