    You thought it was dead, but the Nintendo Wii U lives on. Following an update that initially was just for European regions, the update is also supposedly to be made available in North American and Japan, according to patch notes. However, currently, Nintendo of America's site does not note any new firmware revisions, nor do we know if the update will actually come to non-EU systems. At this point, we have no idea what 5.5.4 changes, besides standard stability. The last time we saw an update for the Wii U was all the way back in September 2018, for version 5.5.3 which was yet another stability update. If you still value using your Wii U, you might want to wait on updating, to see what this changes in terms of homebrew.

    The following titles were updated: VersionData, and Wii U Menu.

    Total titles sizes: 102482052

    SOAP TitleHash: 0B1C2469FA99869CFFD6642AD035D006

    More seriously, EU consumer protection laws in full force, makes me wish other countries stood up for their citizens' rights

    Yeah, I love the forced popups on sites. Good intentions possibly, but what's next? Forced videos and music?

    On topic, Just tried to update my USA Wii U console and it didn't find any updates.

    There are currently no updates outside the EUR region. Is there any word from Nintendo directly that it should happen?

    When Bloodstained isn't on the Wii U, you know the system's dead. Instead, it got something that's supposedly better than nothing that will make anime fans cry on prom night!

    The Wii U Menu hasn't been updated since 5.5.0, so I'm interested in seeing what this does.

    Don't worry, one final thing will finally end the wii u, the shovel knight update. What a fitting end, now shovel knight's last patch can bury your wii u the same place they buried the enchantress. :P

    Wow that came out of nowhere. I’m shocked they are putting any effort in the Wii U at all!
