Wii U firmware update allows for Wii classics viewed on Game Pad
Nintendo has released a new firmware for the Wii U, which allows you to view your Wii Virtual Console titles on the Game Pad – although you’ll still need a WiiMote to play.
Other new features include the ability to receive recommended software and demos via SpotPass; support for USB keyboards; an option to disable your Nintendo Network ID on non-Nintendo hardware; and Dolby Pro Logic II Surround Sound support for Wii titles.
A friend list icon has been added to the Wii U menu, and there have been several changes to system settings menus, Wii U chat and the Internet browser.
Finally, there have been various improvements to overall system stability and “other minor adjustments have been made to enhance the user experience”.
