New Video Talks December Wii U Update and Dragon Quest

By   /   3 years ago


The incredibly long initial Wii U update may have left a sour taste in your mouth, but Nintendo is looking to remedy that. Apparently it abides by the philosophy, “better late than never,” as the new update that improves slow software installations is around the corner.

The update, which will hopefully prevent future Wii U owners from sitting in frustration, waiting to play their new console, will be pushed out in December. In fact, the update was announced via YouTube by Nintendo’s Satoru Iwata, so you know that it’s serious.

In the video, Iwata makes a brief appearance to personally apologize for the Wii U premium-set shortages, and then the video goes on to discuss the latest Dragon Quest. According to the video — which you will find below — the Dragon Quest beta will start sometime in February 2013; it features a new Magic Labyrinth with a random layout; there’s party auto matching for quick starts; rare treasures to be acquired from bosses; and new jobs which include magic warrior and superstar.
