Wii U

Well, here we are in 2021 - production of the 3DS has been discontinued and the focus is now entirely on the Switch, which is almost four years old. Despite everything happening with Nintendo's hybrid platform, it seems the video game giant has still got enough time in its busy schedule to update older systems.

In this particular case, we're talking about the Wii U. The tablet device and console has just been updated for the first time since September 2018. The patch notes admittedly aren't all that exciting (and appear to be the same as the last lot), but still - it's an update for the Wii U in 2021!

Here is the full rundown, courtesy of the official Nintendo support page:

Ver. 5.5.5 U (March 1st, 2021)

Improvements to system stability and usability

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

Well-known Nintendo dataminer OatmealDome has shared some additional information about this latest update:

It's hard to believe, but yes - it's real! How about yourself, though? Can you believe the Wii U firmware has been updated in 2021? Will you be dusting off your own system to download this firmware. Tell us below.
