Nintendo Releases Wii U Version 5.5.3

Written by Jordan Lucero on September 4th, 2018.

The stability gods at Nintendo have struck again with the first Wii U update since July 2017. Don’t worry homebrewers, this update doesn’t affect your hacks. New additions include further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments to the user experience. Exciting, right?

Nintendo has also updated some EULAs to better comply with the General Data Protection Regulation. The GDPR was implemented in Europe earlier this year to make companies disclose any collection of user data. Currently, those are all the changes that people have discovered in Wii U version 5.5.3. This is the first update to the console in over a year and the Switch has already almost caught up to the Wii U’s version number, currently at 5.1.0.

What system will the stability gods grace next? Are you going to go back to playing Smash in peace? What would you change about the Wii U menu? I’d personally remove the Miiverse icon. Whatever game you’ll play next, you’ll know you’ll have quite the stable time.
