Wii U updated to Version 5.5.4

It's alive!

The Wii U may have been forgotten by consumers, but Nintendo remembers. The Wii U has gotten an update to firmware version 5.5.4, which seems to be another standard update.

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

Thanks to T27duck for the heads up!

This is Europe only.

It's for all regions. EU has some more files changed. Probably related to regulations.

Actually when I checked my Wii U (I'm on 5.5.3) this morning (I'm North American), my Wii U said my system is up-to-date.

This might be a Europe-only update after all or Nintendo of America pulled the American 5.5.4 update down.

It's possible. RMC said his WiiU updated before posting, so the may have pulled it.

I’m playing with my Wii U currently. I just started DKC: Tropical Freeze (what a game!) and Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment. Man it feels weird using the GamePad, but it’s pretty comfy actually.
Shovel Knight is always sure to remind me that the ”Miiverse functions are unavailable”. :’(
