Wii U Receives New Firmware Update Ver. 5.5.5 With Improved System Stability and Usability

Wii U

Nintendo today released a new system update for the Wii U hybrid console in Japan. Its been almost two and a half years since the Wii U received its last 5.5.3 firmware update back in early September 2018. Now, the interesting is that the 5.5.4 is missing if you check the Wii U latest system update on the official US Nintendo website.

According to some users, Nintendo released the latest firmware, 5.5.4 for the Wii U in June of 2019 or something but it forgot to list it into the latest firmware update on its official site.

Now, the latest firmware update has arrived for Wii U with version number 5.5.5 that only improves system stability and usability of the Wii U hybrid console.

However, the latest Wii U update version 5.5.5 is only listed on Nintendo’s Japanese support page, while the US support page still has version 5.5.3 listed as the latest update for the console.
