So you have a bunch of Virtual Console lying on your Wii. Maybe you’ve already transferred them to a Wii U. Now, what happens if you wanted to transfer save data when the Wii U VC service officially launches this spring?

Unfortunately, Nintendo has confirmed that gamers won’t be able to transfer saves from the Wii’s Virtual Console to the Wii U’s Virtual Console. You’ll be able to “upgrade” Wii VC games sitting on your console to the Wii U version at a later date, but you’ll have to start over from the beginning.


This week’s video additions to the eShop are as follows:


Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon Multiplayer Video
Pokemon X and Pokemon Y Video
Super C Video
ATV Wild Ride 3D Video
Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars Video
Cocoto Alien Brick Breaker Video

Rock Pocket Games is bringing its indie title Oliver & Spike Dimension Jumpers to Wii U.

Described as “Ratchet&Clank meets Zelda meets Uncharted”, Dimension Jumpers will offer adventure and platforming gameplay. Each world has a unique “Dimension Jumping” mechanic. Players will find three parallel dimensions, all of which contain an original storyline, quest-arcs, NPCs, and physical laws.

The story focuses on Oliver – a child separated from his parents as a child and “a boy with a special heritage” – and his friend Spike. Through the adventure, you’ll unravel Oliver’s past.

For more information about Oliver & Spike Dimension Jumpers, view the official website here.

The 3DS Virtual Console release of Super C is far from a straight port of the original. Along with 2-player download play, Super C also contains a Spectator mode. This feature allows one person to play the game while another watches.


On Monday, Nintendo will carry out “emergency” maintenance for its various online services. The Wii U eShop, 3DS eShop, DSi Shop, and Wii Shop Channel will all be inaccessible. Additionally, the Pokemon Black/White and Pokemon Black/White 2 services will be affected, as will Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper’s online functionality.

Most of the maintenance will start and end on Monday. The full downtime listings can be found below.
