Wii U system update finally adds folders


An update that I feel is long overdue for the Wii U is now available. It adds the ability to create folders on the home screen, where you can store the games and apps downloaded to your system. This is a function the Nintendo 3DS has had for a while, hence my opinion that Nintendo has been a little slow on getting the Wii U equivalent up and running. Oh well. It’s here now. And at least the folders display the whole name you choose for them, as opposed to the first letter only. Hooray.

What are your thoughts?

In addition to being a girl gamer, Holly prides herself on being a red-head. Consequently, the blue shell in the Mario Kart series is her natural enemy. Don't worry, though: she still loves Mario Kart and is very good, despite the occasional blue shell-sabotaged race. Like any Nintendo fan, Holly also loves Zelda, Pokemon, Mario, Donkey Kong, Metroid, Kirby...you name it. But she'll try just about anything (besides horror games) and has a soft spot for unique, little-known rhythm games like Rhythm Heaven and Samba de Amigo. NNID: Aeroweth


  1. Your folder names and colors are so boring, Holly 😛

  2. Mike’s folder names:

    Hardcore Rage (Games)

    Unicorn ponies (virtual console)

    Magical Koopa Breath (apps)

  3. I lost it at Unicorn Ponies XD

  4. I was in a hurry! This is breaking news, after all!

  5. “Breaking news”

    “Oh well.” “Hooray.”


  6. Sounds like there needs to be a contest to name Holly’s folders!

  7. Be my guest! I’ll put together a Word document with all of the ideas from people.

  8. Well my photos in the Wii U group show my names…

    but here.

    “This game sucks” (Tough/thought-required games like Zelda or Professor Layton)

    “I’m drunk” (Simple games like Dr. Mario/Luigi, Kirby games)

    “MIKE IS BEST <3" (Online games like MK8 and Monster Hunter)

  9. I’ll give this a shot.
