After making headlines yesterday regarding their presence at this year's E3, Nintendo decided to release a major system update for the Wii U. This massive update is expected to include improved stability and load times, the launch of Virtual Console, and the Wii U Panorama view. For a more detailed analysis of everything that this update covers, feel free to look below.
A library of quality classic games are on the way including Balloon Fight, Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr., Excitebike, F-Zero, Ice Climber, Kirby’s Adventure, Kirby Super Star, Mario Bros., Punch-Out!! Featuring Mr. Dream, Super Mario Bros. 2, Super Mario World, Super Metroid and Yoshi.
Wii U Panorama View will open a window to the sights and sounds of some of the world’s most exotic destinations. Wii U owners use the GamePad controller to look in every direction to control an immersive 360-degree video guided tour as these destinations come to life from the comfort of your living room. Imagine catching all the sights during a tour of London on a double-decker bus or exploring the streets of Rio de Janeiro during Carnival. Wii U Panorama View will be available as a free downloadable demo from the Nintendo eShop and includes a sample of different experiences the application has to offer.
While I'm still skeptical about Nintendo these days, even I will admit that they are making admirable strides towards giving Wii U owners more bang for their bucks. Once the games start flowing, I'm pretty certain that Nintendo will be fine. It's important to remember that the 3ds also had a slow start and is right now enjoying it's best year of releases yet. Only time well tell if ultimately all these business moves payoff in the end.
