Not one to only lend the Nintendo 3DS more stability when needed, Nintendo have now rolled out system update Version 5.4.0 for Wii U worldwide.
We’re sure that the Nintendo Digital Event may hold some surprises for each platform’s functionality next week, and perhaps these are a preparatory step toward that. But, for the first Wii U system update since December last year, it’s needless to say that it comes as somewhat of a disappointment.
For those in Europe, the system update quietly removes the Nintendo TVii icon after the company abandoned their plans to launch the service in the region.
“At Nintendo of Europe, we continue to challenge ourselves to develop a range of entertaining experiences for all to enjoy,” Nintendo of Europe explained back in February.
“Due to the extremely complex nature of localising multiple television services across a diverse range of countries with varied licensing systems, regrettably we have taken the decision not to launch the Nintendo TVii service within the European region. Although on this occasion we did not anticipate such challenges, we will always strive to develop a range of entertaining experiences for all our users to enjoy.”

Version 5.4.0, available via an Internet connection, includes the following improvements:
