Nintendo has launched a software program replace for its languishing Wii U console, its first in practically two and a half years. The console has made the large bounce from model 5.5.3 to… 5.5.5.
The patch notes are frustratingly imprecise, so it’s arduous to inform precisely what modified. “Additional enhancements to general system stability and different minor changes have been made to boost the person expertise,” the patch notes learn. I can’t say I ever skilled crashes on my Wii U again once I had one, however I suppose extra stability is nice for the doubtless few folks nonetheless utilizing the console.

There are nonetheless a couple of Wii U exclusives price retaining it plugged in for, corresponding to The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD, and Xenoblade Chronicles X. However given how readily Nintendo has introduced its finest Wii U video games over to the Change, there’s an opportunity they might get ported, too, additional rendering the Wii U out of date.
No less than the Wii U is a bit more steady now.
