The Quick Start Menu is here

Nintendo has released the Wii U Quick Start Menu earlier than some of us were expecting — it’s available in a new system update, rolling out now. By turning on the GamePad with its power or home button, a menu will appear that lets you launch recently played or installed software. This feature is going to be a real time-saver, and there’s more to the update:

  • Wii U GamePad Alerts (special notifications from Nintendo) can be displayed on the GamePad when the Wii U is powered down
  • System updates will now automatically install after download when the Wii U is in Standby
  • The User Settings screen now displays when users select their User Mii from the Wii U Menu
  • The design and layout of the Users Settings screen has been updated
  • Quick Start Menu options have been added to Power Settings
  • A Notification icon is now available on the HOME Menu, allowing users to launch the Notifications feature from the HOME Menu
  • Further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments have been made to enhance the user experience

It took a while to get everything set up, but my goodness, the new menu rocks. It pops up after only a couple seconds and is fast to launch your games as promised.
