One of the problems with the new Wii U OS is that navigating menus and opening apps takes an unnaturally long amount of time. It’s apparently enough of an issue that Nintendo has issued a statement about it.
“We are aware that users are experiencing load times when they launch or switch between applications. We are exploring ways to enhance features for consumers’ overall experience.”
A few Wii U owners have also reported having the system freeze on them. In the event this happens to your Wii U, Nintendo recommends doing the following:
“Instances of system freezing are rare and unlikely to occur. If your system has frozen unexpectedly, do the following:
- Reset your system by unplugging it from the wall for 10 seconds.
- Ensure your system is kept current with available system updates (How to).”
