Update: A quick overview of new features:
-Wii Off TV Play (still requires Wiimotes)
-Surround Sound support for Wii games (Dolby Pro Logic II)
-Access Friend’s List from Wii U menu directly
-Upload screens taken when pausing the game directly to blogs and forums using the browser.
-Option to receive automatically downloaded software from Nintendo.
-Wii U Chat via headset connected to the Game Pad
-View PDFs on the Browser.
A new Wii U update is now available for download. It should be up around the world – North America, Europe, and Japan.
It seems like the update is a rather large download (648 MB), so we’re not quite sure what it does just yet. We’ll keep this post up-to-date with details.
