Saves from Wii Virtual Console Won’t Work on Wii U Upgraded Versions

by on January 29, 2013


Kotaku has confirmed, after a conversation with Nintendo, that saved games for Virtual Console games on the Wii will not transfer over to Wii U updates of those saved games.

Currently you can transfer VC games and their save files and still play them using the Wii U’s Wii Menu, but if you want to play the updated versions that will let you use the Wii U Gamepad and other features, you’ll have to start those games from scratch.

On a related note, Nintendo has also dated some Virtual Console games for the Wii U eShop at discounted prices.
