How the Wii/Wii U transfer process works

Posted on November 7, 2012 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Wii, Wii U

The Wii to Wii U transfer process will be ready to go on day-one.

Here’s how the process works:

– Like the DS/3DS transfer
– Insert an SD card into the Wii U to initiate the process
– Use the Wii System Transfer app
– Once the process has been started, insert the same SD card into the Wii and download another transfer app from the Wii Shop Channel
– This app moves data over to the card
– Then need to put the card back into the Wii U
– Wii data will then be moved to the console and deleted from the card

You’ll be able to bring over the following content from the Wii:

– Wii Software save data
– WiiWare and save data
– Virtual Console titles and save data
– Add-on content
– Wii Points
– Wii Shop Channel activity
– Mii characters
