Love it! I can now sort my WiiU titles by their decade like I have been doing with my 3DS
I love the update! I'll separate my games by genre! ^.^

Folders should have been added a longtime ago, but it's nice that they are finally available on the Wii U.
I've made folders for

Offline Single Player Games like Scram Kitty, Stick It to the Man!, Toki Tori, Master Reboot, etc.

Online Single Player Games. 2 Pages for games with online multiplayer like Assassin's Creed III, Rayman, Cubemen 2, Coaster Crazy Deluxe, and 2 pages for games with online leaderboards like RUNNER2, XTYPE+, Puddle, etc.

Singleplayer Games with a Multiplayer mode like Guacamelee!, ZombiU, The Cave, FlowerWorks, Zen Pinball 2, KickBeat, etc. It doesn't matter if they have online. Singleplayer and local (offline)multiplayer has priority.

Games with focus on multiplayer like Spin the Bottle, Darts Up, TANK! TANK! TANK!, Chasing Aurora,etc.
But also all games where I mastered the singleplayer mode 100% so that there's only multiplayer left to play like F1 Race Stars, TNT Racers, Abyss, etc.

- "VC NES" -

- "VC SNES" -

- "VC GBA  
VC DS" -

- "APPS" -

- "DEMOS" -

I left all the Nintendo 1st Party Software (didn't want to store Hyrule Warriors, Mario Kart 8 and such away) and a few channels like Mii Maker and Wii U Chat in the main menu.

Awesome! I can finally sort my games by genre! Very Happy
I hope we get crossbuy for all VC titles soon! I wanna play my SNES, and GBA games on the go!
The "Create Folder" icon made me feel a little foolish. I tried dragging it to a more convenient location on my Wii U Menu a few times before I realised it was the cursor! Neutral
Why isn't there an article about the 3DS update?
@Kushina I don't know Sad I personally bought a couple of themes and like the 3DS update a bit more
What an awesome update! Very Happy

The folders are a great addition to the Wii U firmware.
