Wii U console requires day-one update - report

Wii U is out across Europe from November 30th, but game sites have started receiving their units for review now, revealing that Nintendo's hardware requires a day-one update at launch. Get the details below.

IGN reports that the site's Wii U required an update at first start. The site reports that the update added Miiverse, Wii U Chat, Nintendo TVii, and the eShop download store to the console, although it was unclear if other changes were included.

Wii U coverage is ramping up in the run up to the console's US and EU launch, and began with the world's first reviews of Nintendo Land and New Super Mario Bros. U.

VG247 has also had extensive hands-on time with most of the European Wii U launch titles, and we found them to be largely enjoyable, with ZombiU, Nintendo Land, New Super Mario Bros U and Trine 2 to be some of the best games on offer.
