Because Nintendo messed up big with how they handle Wii games on the Wii U.

Shame.

Although I was thinking of starting Super Metroid over again, I can't transfer over A Link to The Past until I finish it.

Always something.

There is no defending it, this is a screw up, at best maybe they can fix it

If you transfer a game from the Wii to the Wii U's Wii mode, the save will transfer, too. As such, you won't "lose it" at all. You just won't be able to access that save without entering Wii Mode, thereby losing MiiVerse functionality and GamePad use.

Why is the difference between Wii Mode VC and Wii U VC so hard for so many people to grasp?
Gaming is like a pair of boobs - Sony and Microsoft fight over whos boobs look more realistic, while Nintendo is about having fun with them - Walkiethrougie

Wait why wouldn't they work that way? Isn't the Wii U version an entirely separate game whereas your old version that's still on Wii mode has it's old save data?
