Wii U

It’s been months since we last saw an update for the Wii U, but that’s not necessarily surprising given that Nintendo jumped ship with the thing just about as fast as they plausibly could’ve. Indeed, the Wii U died a quick death as Nintendo moved on to greener pastures with the Switch, but it seems that perhaps the company hasn’t already completely forgotten about its ill-fated device. A new update was just put out for the Wii U, and after installing it, we can confidently say that the OS will never be the same.

In a way that only Nintendo can do, the Wii U is now even more stable than it was ever before. Install that update now, and gaze in awe at the sluggish (but super-stable) speed of the system as it struggles to switch tasks and do basic things like loading Miiverse or the eShop. As it would happen, this update does nothing else, but hey, at least Nintendo is still supporting the console somewhat, right?

What do you think? How long does the Wii U have until Miiverse or its own eShop get disabled? How much more stable will the console get before it finally kicks the bucket? Drop us a comment in the section below.
