*Update* Wii to Wii U transfer tool now available A780KE2CYAEy7ds

Now available from the Wii Shop Channel, you can download the Wii U transfer tool channel. To transfer tour Wii downloadable games and your Wii Shop account to the Wii U system, you must first own the Wii U system and an SD card for that system.

Another important note that was reveal before downloading the tool is that the content on the Wii SD card will not transfer to the Wii U SD card. Fortunately, redownloading all of your previous purchases from the Wii Shop Channel is still possible on Wii U.

Here's a video about this software from KingreX32 himself!

Remember to do a Wii U system update first.

I just got it (yeah I fixed my wii for 5 minutes... Hopefully it can be fixed again though because it's acting up still)

Wait a minute here. If it's not possible to transfer games directly from the SD card, what if you have a lot of games on your SD card? Couldn't someone just sell their old Wii console with all of the games still on the SD card, or does transfering your WiiShop account to the WiiU render those games unplayable?

I made a vid about the channel. Check it out here.

Wow... My Wii must be real old and dying since it doesn't jump from page to page quickly as seen in your video. It even struggles buffering videos in Nintendo Channel. Poor Wii. Can't wait for my WiiU.

youve probably got alot of games saved on there from the VC. Right?

Wait wait wait...if none of the content is transferrable to the Wii U's SD Card, doesn't that mean you can't transfer save data either?! You have to start all your VC games from scratch?! Surprised

GamerZack put so much effort into his VC games! If the save data won't carry over when he gets his Wii U... Crying or Very sad

@zack yes from my experience that's how it has happened, but I HAD to transfer otherwise I would've wasted $$ on a ton of VC
