Wii U | Folders

Nintendo’s latest firmware update for the Wii U includes a feature that dates back to the 19th century. Namely, folders have arrived for the Wii U.

Version 5.2.0 U will enable Wii U owners to group their games and apps into folders. To create one, all they have to do is select an empty block. Tapping it again will create a folder. Using it should be second nature for anyone who owns an Apple device. Or even the 3DS.

Folders aren’t the only change coming in this firmware update, although it is the sexiest. The Quick Start Menu will pop up if you turn on the Wii U through the TV Remote functionality. The Download Management icon has been added to the Wii U Menu (originally, it was only in the Home Menu). The Home Menu got a little facelift. The keyboard for redeeming codes in the eShop now disables characters that are not used in eShop codes. Finally, no firmware update is complete without the “Further improvements to overall system stability” bullet point.

About Karli Winata

Karli Winata is an avid gamer with a taste for a little bit of everything. Except for sports games. And racing sims. And definitely not hidden object games! I guess everything is too broad a term. Suffice it to say that he has been known to play hours of Call of Duty multiplayer in between bouts of Persona fusing and Star Coin collecting while saving the world/galaxy through sensibly bald space marines or plucky teenagers with impossible hairstyles. Where does he find the time to write about them?
