How To Transfer Wii Data To Your Wii U

By   /   4 years ago


When you unbox your Wii U on November 18th, you might be wondering how to transfer data from your original Wii console to your new Wii U. Luckily for you, we have a full guide on what to transfer and just how you can transfer it.

If you want to move over all your Wii Points and save games, as well as other data then all you’ll need is an SD card and a couple of Wii Remotes.

So, let’s do this.

Step 1
You need both your Wii and Wii U set up and connected to the internet. You’ll also need an SD or SDHC card with at least 512MB of space on it.

Step 2
Insert the SD card into your Wii U. From the Menu selet the Wii System Transfer option and follow the on-screen instructions.

Step 3
Remove the SD card from the Wii U, then insert it into the Wii. From the Wii Shop Channel you’ll need to download the transfer app. Run the app and allow it to transfer the data to the SD card.

Step 4
Remove the SD card from the Wii and insert it into the Wii U. Confirm the message and select the Transfer option.

Step 5
Enjoy your Wii U!

It’s a bit long-winded, but it’s a safeguard against storing personal details on the cloud. It doesn’t take too long, fortunately.
