Even though the Wii U is now obsolete at least to Nintendo, the controversial system occasionally gets third-party games. Maybe in the next few years, that too will stop. But that’s nothing too sad as the hybrid Switch did everything people expected and wanted, replacing the older consoles.

In this forgotten era of this last-gen system, it seems Nintendo is still giving the console minor support. As, the Nintendo Wii U recently, got a system update, the update. Furthermore, this patch fixes system stability and smoothens usability. Additionally, Twitter user OatmealDome pointed out that the new Wii U update changed how the console uses SSL codes. Usually done to stop hacking and piracy. This was not the case this time.

Nevertheless, the Wii U is something Nintendo would like to forget and they have made a superb comeback with the Switch. Hence, they do not have to look back to the darker days ever again. Some might say their failures of the previous generation, allowed them to make a stronger return. After all, the Switch still holds and in some cases dominates the newer consoles from Sony and Microsoft.

One thing the Wii U still offers is some classic and well-done exclusive titles, that still attract gamers. Such as Legend of Zelda Wind Waker, Xenoblade Chronicles X.
