Wii U System Update 5.1.1 Now Available

Nintendo has rolled out the next Wii U system update for North America and Europe as expected from our report yesterday. Bar from providing additional stability to the hardware, version 5.1.1 doesn’t appear to do much else. Given the substantial update last month, which added additional controller options for the Nintendo eShop and Wii U to Wii U system transfers, version 5.1.1 merely files under routine maintenance to enhance the user experience. Here’s the short but official word from Nintendo.

Content from the source console, including any users, Nintendo Network IDs, save data, and digital content, will replace that on the target console.

All content from a Wii U must be transferred. You cannot transfer just a single user or Nintendo Network ID through this process
All content on the target Wii U will be lost when the console is formatted and replaced by the content from the source Wii U, with the exception of Wii Menu content, Internet connection settings, TV settings, Wii U GamePad TV Remote settings, and Wii Remote and Wii U GamePad pairing
The source Wii U will be formatted once the transfer is complete
Nintendo Network IDs that previously existed on the target Wii U can be relinked after the transfer How to
If these Nintendo Network IDs are relinked, content purchased by them on the target Wii U will become available for download. The save data for IDs that previously existed on the target system will be deleted as part of the system transfer process, and any USB Storage devices that were previously used will need to be formatted to work with the Wii U again
There is a limit of 12 Nintendo Network IDs that can be linked to a single Wii U at one time
Wii Menu digital content is transferred, but it is not deleted from the target Wii U. Wii Menu digital content from both consoles will be combined
