    I'm looking to buy a Wii U for Loadiine and it's basically down to either Mario Kart 8(which has been reported to have later firmware) or the Mario 3D World Bundle(which has last been reported at 5.3.2).

    Did ANYONE here buy it recently and have had higher than 5.3.2 on it?

    I need to know since I plan on selling my Destiny Taken King PS4 to get it and I don't want to sell my PS4 unless I get a Wii U with that firmware or lower.

    I know Mario 3D World Bundle is 5.1.2.
    You will need Mario Party 10 or Splatoon to update to 5.3.2.

    I've seen that, but I'm more trying to see anyone who bought it recently in the past month or so. I want to make doubly sure because I'm basically trading system for system and don't want to get rid of my PS4 unless I get exactly what I need. It's still listed as a bundle on Nintendo's website which makes me worried a bit. Also, it's not like the N3DS where there's a big database to go by.

    This doesn't really help, but I bought a Super Mario 3D World bundle, but it came with physical copies (Bought it off ebay). which came with 1.0.3, so old!
    I don't think anyone has ever reported a SM3DW bundle that didn't come with 5.3.2 or lower. It's almost guaranteed at this time. Nintendo hasn't made any newer production of SM3DW bundles, what I think personally.

    Edit: This thread shows serial keys and firmwares https://gbatemp.net/threads/wii-u-serial-number-database.404967/

    So buy it, look at the serial number on the box itself, and return if you don't think it's the one you need.
