Nintendo has begun to roll out version 5.2.0 of its Wii U operating system, which implements a number of changes, tweaks, and additions.
Chief among the changes is the option to create folders on the console's home page, allowing users to better organise and arrange their software. Meanwhile, a download management icon will now feature on the home screen, giving users a more direct view of their download queue.
Nintendo has also tweaked its quick-start menu--a fairly recent addition to the operating system that allows users to jump into games and applications moments from booting the console, bypassing the Miiverse and homepage. With the latest update the quick-start menu can now be activated in more ways, and certain applications can be removed from it.
The design and layout of its home menu has also been refreshed with various background changes that should enhance system stability.
The changes come ahead of the release of Super Smash Bros for Wii U, which is the latest major Nintendo game to launch on the console. The game's release date has yet to be officially confirmed, but the latest retail leak suggests the game will ship on November 21.
