Wii U system update version 4.0.2 out now

Posted on November 18, 2013 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Wii U

Nintendo has put out a new Wii U firmware update. Starting now, system owners can download version 4.0.2.

The update is rather small, but nonetheless noteworthy. It essentially improves stability and usability of the console.

Note that you’ll need to download the latest Wii U update in order to access the eShop.

    I hate these non-specific update notes =s

      Stability is always good, especially if it fixes the ever disappearing freezing issues…

      • Rodrigo Coelho Costa Junior

        I know its good, what I mean is: Why don’t they freaking say “we fixed the freaking bug that used to freeze your wii u during some special conditions”
        At least we would know if they fixed a freezing issue, or if they improved the security agains hacks, or if they improved the eshop and miiverse not connecting sometimes when you enter them for the first time in a day, or…. you get my point.

          Exactly what I am thinking. Why always making a secret out of it WHAT exactly has been improved 😛

            I know right? thats exactly what bothers me -_-

            They make it a secret because usually these updates patch Wii U exploits that could enable homebrew and hacks on the console.

      They NEED to bring Non-Specific Action Figure back.

      • PattonFiend

        Don’t worry, I just tweeted Nintendo that they needed to bring Non-Specific Action Figure back… 😀

      • Rodrigo Coelho Costa Junior

        Yeah! Hahhahaha It was a hit last year (or the year before?) and they ignored it afterwards!

    Took like 1 minute to download.. Don’t think its going to be very significant..

  • Yomi Anibaba

  • Adrian Brown

    it’s an update to celebrate 1 year of that big day one update

    Any new features??? Didnt think so what a waste of money this console turned out to be.

      What did you expect from a stability update? Not every update is supposed to bring new features, this does not happen on any platform. Also, Nintendo has delivered plenty of features in addition to the ones that they promised to bring in the last updates, maybe you should do your own research before buying the console.

      at least our updates don’t damage the console cough ps3 cough ps4.

    I’ve noticed some significant freezing of Netflix now that 4.02 is installed. Freezing occurs randomly, multiple times, mid-show. Hit button to go back to Plaza, and it sits there for quite a while, and finally goes to Plaza (like it kills the Netflix process). Go in to Netflix and it works again for a while.

    Anyone else having Netflix issues?
