Nintendo has released the latest Wii U System Update 5.1.1 featuring Minor Enhancements and Bug fixes. The update is available in North America and Europe, and has nothing special to add.

The update details are as Follows:

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

Furthermore, Nintendo has following to say about the update:

After the Wii U system is updated, any existing or future unauthorized technical modification of the hardware or software of your Wii U system, or the use of an unauthorized device in connection with your system, may render the system permanently unplayable. Content deriving from the unauthorized modification of the hardware or software of your Wii U system may be removed. Failure to accept the update may render games unplayable.

Previous System update Version 5.1.0 allowed consumers to transfer all of the software or data from one Wii U to another. The update 5.1.1 came right before the Hyrule Warriors Nintendo Direct which is scheduled for today.
