Nintendo has released a new Wii U system software update THAT adds the ability to organise apps and games into folders.

Each desktop folder can be given a name and customised with a range of colours, handily de-cluttering your home screen.

The update, numbered 5.2.0, was released to Wii U owners last night.

A few other tweaks are also included, such as the addition of a Download Management button to the home screen.

The full patch notes are available below.
