Nintendo has released a new system update for the Wii U today. The 4.02 update, according to Twitter user @TiLMEN, adds “further improvements to system stability and other minor adjustments.”

This update will be the first of two updates coming to the Wii U, with the second coming in December to add combined eShop accounts with the 3DS. It is unclear what other improvements will be made in the second update.

For years, he has purchased every one of the company's subsequent products (yes, including the Virtual Boy and eReader). It wasn't until he was a young teen when he bought a PS2 that he began to embrace cross-console relations, a decision he doesn't regret. When he's not gaming, Harrison is looking to break into the magazine journalism industry and realize his dream of becoming a features reporter.
