Wii to Wii U transfer

If you're a Wii owner, it's possible to transfer existing save data and purchased content to a Wii U console, so you can continue enjoying your favourite Wii experiences on Wii U.


Content that can be moved across includes:

  • Save data for Wii software

  • WiiWare and save data

  • Virtual Console titles and save data

  • Add-on content for software

  • Mii characters

In addition, your Wii Points balance and Wii Shop Channel account activity will move across to Wii U. This means you can spend your Wii Points in the Wii Shop Channel on Wii U, accessed through Wii Mode.
