    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.

    So what's the REAL changelog say?

    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.

    It's an OSv10 patch so I'd be very careful and wait until someone confirms it's safe to update.

    EDIT: it's safe

    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.

    Come on, Nintendo... Give the DSi some stability too while you're at it.
