Get WiiWare and VC games copied over
Many of us who have bought things from the WiiWare or Virtual Console services have been wondering how we'll be able to transfer these games onto the new Wii U console. A Nintendo representative has been quoted as saying this is possible, but you'll need your original Wii console in the room and powered on to do it.
"I can confirm that you will be able to transfer your content from your Wii to the new Wii U. Wii U owners can wirelessly transfer content such as Miis, and WiiWare and Virtual Console games to their Wii U systems. Both systems will need to be connected to the Internet and the Wii U will need an SD card to facilitate the transfer."
"The process is very similar to transferring content from Nintendo DS to Nintendo 3DS or from Nintendo 3DS to Nintendo 3DS XL; which has been received positively by consumers. Transferred Wii content is accessible and can be played through Wii Mode, an application on the Wii U's main menu." - Nintendo representative
Isn't it about time Nintendo tied digital purchases to an online account?
