Tomorrow will be four years since the Nintendo Switch hit stores. You have to see how quickly time passes. Still, despite everything, you can see that Nintendo has not forgotten about the Wii U, which is why it has surprisingly published an update to its firmware, and it is now available for download.
The patch in question welcomes version 5.5.5, and it is the first that the console received has since September 2018, two and a half years, which is said soon. So, you can already access it if you still have it plugged in at home and you continue to enjoy it.
Of course, do not expect something shocking either, because the update all does is improve the system’s stability and other minor adjustments that have been made to make the user experience more satisfactory. Some improvements that never hurt.
On the other hand, if we take a look at the messages published by the OatmealDome data miner, we can see that this new patch has carried out some changes in the SSL code (Secure Sockets Layer) of the console to guarantee greater security in the connections that are made in browsers and servers.
Interestingly, it is not the only similar case that we have encountered recently. In December, PS3 also updated its system 14 years since its launch, so it seems it is never the wrong time to dust off the old consoles.
