There's a new system update for the Wii U for version 5.5.5U

Are you ready for a system software update? No, not for the Nintendo Switch, but the Wii U! It's been quite a while since we've seen one of these--the last update was issued in September of 2018, in fact. A brand new firmware update is available for the console, bringing it to version number 5.5.5. The official changelog is helpful as usual, giving us that magical sentence we can always expect from Nintendo. Keep an eye on this thread and hopefully we'll find out what exactly this update actually brings to the table.

Improvements to system stability and usability
  • Further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments have been made to enhance the user experience.

So what's the REAL changelog say?

Danggg now the Wii U entering the stability race as well? :creep:
Someday consoles will be so stable therapists will hate them!
The Wii U is so stable, you no longer need the plastic feet for it to stand vertically.

I am sure all 2 people still playing the Wii U are chuffed to bits right now for this update.
I don't even think they're happy for the update, given I can't imagine anyone still plays the Wii U unless it's to use as an emulation box...

Well, in that case, I bet all 2 people still using the Wii U are extremely mad about this update

I feel weird being one of the two people still playing the Wii U. And yes, kinda worried to see what this can do to Haxchi, but in the worst case it's just that I can't play mario kart with my sis online anymore.
For those who might want to install cfw in the future, that might be a big problem.
