You Can Now Transfer Your Wii U Data To Another System

Wii U


Wii U owners got another system update that allows you  transfer your save data from one Wii U to another. This includes your software, Mii characters, user settings (Nintendo Network IDs and downloaded content to a new system but you’ll only be able to transfer your data every seven days. This setup is similar to the Nintendo 3DS. Both Wii U systems must be up to date with 5.1.0 U for this work. Details on the system transfer and step-by-step instructions are available at Nintendo’s support website.


Some of the other new features:

  • You can now navigate Nintendo eShop with other controllers in addition to the GamePad. These include the Wii U Pro Controller, Wii Remote (Plus), Nunchuk and Classic Controller (Pro).

This is what you’ll need:

The following are required to perform a Wii U to Wii U system transfer:

  • The source and target Wii U consoles
    • The source console must also have a linked Nintendo Network ID
  • Two Wii U GamePads, one paired with each console
  • An SD Card with enough room to hold the system and save data from the source system
    • Game data will be redownloaded once the transfer is complete, so the SD Card only needs to be large enough for system and save data
  • A network connection that allows both Wii U systems to be connected online simultaneously
  • A Wii Remote or Wii Remote Plus is required if you have Wii Menu data
  • A USB storage device may be required if you are transferring content from a Wii U Deluxe Set (32 GB) to a Wii U Basic Set (8 GB)
