VC transfers: do saves transfer as well?

Anyone know if the save game data transfers as well, or do you need to start over with the wii U version of a virtual console game? thanks, and apologies if this was asked.

All saves transfer with the games.

It depends on what you're asking. The free transfer of your games from Wii to Wii U will transfer your saves as well. However, it's possible that once the Wii U VC version of a game comes out (the kind that people are complaining about paying a dollar for), you'll actually be buying a second copy of the game rather than literally just upgrading your Wii version. In that case, while you can still switch to Wii Mode and play on your old save, you'll need to start a new file to play on the Gamepad and such.
