New Wii U System Update Now Live, Adds Folders

The latest system update for Wii U, dubbed Version 5.2.0, is now live, bringing with it the ability to create folders within the console's menu.

In addition, a Download Management icon has been added to the system's menu. There are a handful of other changes, too, which are all detailed over on the Nintendo Support page. Luckily for you, I've included the full list of changes below. I know, I'm too kind.

Changes to the Wii U Menu:

  • Folders can now be created in the Wii U Menu to hold and organize software icons
  • A Download Management icon has been added to the Wii U Menu

Changes to Quick Start Menu:

  • The Quick Start Menu will now display when the Wii U is powered on from the Wii U GamePad TV Remote
  • Options have been added to Power Settings that allow users to hide certain software from the Quick Start Menu

Changes to the HOME Menu:

  • The design and layout of the HOME Menu has been updated

Changes to the Nintendo eShop:

  • Disabled usage of characters not used when redeeming Nintendo eShop cards (O, I, Z, etc.)

Improvements to system stability and usability:

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

As an organization freak, I must say this is the best news I've heard all week! Well… that might be overstating it just a bit.
