The Wii U has had its fair share of updates recently, and another has been rolled out to add support for the upcoming range of amiibo figures. System version 5.3.0 (add a U or E depending on your region) has added new menus for managing amiibo data while also, no doubt, done plenty of firmware work behind the scenes.

Getting the update well ahead of the figures and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U arriving in stores certainly makes sense; below is the official changelog.

Changes to System Settings:

amiibo Settings has been added to System Settings. amiibo Settings allows users to register an amiibo owner and nickname, delete data written to an amiibo by supported software, or reset an amiibo

Improvements to system stability and usability:

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

Ah yes, more delicious stability joins the amiibo update; that's good to know. As for the settings menu for amiibo, that should allow ease of use when sorting out data for the toys.

The update's available now, even if we can only bask in that extra stability for the time being.
