Wii U System Update 5.1.2 is Now Rolling Out, Brings System Stability & Minor Fixes

By   /   Aug 19, 2014

Nintendo has released another system update for its handheld console, Wii U. Dubbed as version 5.1.2, the said update aims at ‘enhancing the user experience’ by improving system stability and other minor adjustments.

Here are the full details of the update, as provided by Nintendo of America:

Version 5.1.2 U, available via an Internet connection, includes the following improvements:

Improvements to system stability and usability:

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

Update v.5.1.2 follows 5.1.1 which was released a week ago and addressed the same system stability issues. The only Wii U update in recent months which brought some decent changes is 5.1.0 that brought ‘Wii U to Wii U’ system transfer.

Nonetheless, Nintendo has confirmed that this is a mandatory update and failing to update will render games unplayable.

Nintendo has also confirmed that once the system is updated, any existing or future unauthorized technical modification of the hardware or software will brick the console which seems like a more appropriate purpose of the update. The update is currently rolling out and everyone should soon receive it.

In related Wii U news, according to weekly hardware sales report by M-Create, Wii U has managed to sell twice than PS4 in Japan. For more details on Wii U System Update 5.1.2, check out the link!
