In a recent interview with Time Magazine, Shigeru Miyamoto admitted that the Wii U’s user interface isn’t the best part of the newly released console. Luckily, Nintendo is working on it. A brand new user interface should be available as a downloadable update sometime this summer.
“Even during the testing phase, it's difficult to ascertain what facets of those interactions between the applications are resulting in inconveniences for the consumer until you have an opportunity for many people and lots of consumers to try these features out.” Miyamoto said. “What we want to do is make sure that when we release [the update], that we address as many of the different opinions about how people would like to see the system improve as we can at once. We hope to cover a wide range of requests while simultaneously ensuring it's a very stable update to the system."
Miyamoto assures us that the Wii U system will be far improved with this next update and will continue to improve throughout the system’s life-span.
