You may remember reports that the next Wii U system update will dramatically improve the sluggish operating system. Well, it turns out Engadget who reported the story misread the Japanese Nintendo Direct that the information originally stemmed from. The actual update in question will improve performance for Dragon Quest X, and not the Wii U system. I would imagine that Nintendo is aware of the complaints levelled against the OS and are working on a fix.
