  3. Question about Wii U Virtual Console
2 years ago#1
I thought games released on Wii U's Virtual Console that you already had on the Wii VC were supposed to be discounted? I have Super Mario World already and i see it was released and it's 7.99.

i assumed that was the discount price but then i saw F-Zero for the same price, a game i've never bought.

Anyone else having the same problem?

Did you transfer you Wii data to your Wii U? That's a prereq.

Yeah you do the system transfer to get all your VC games and saves from wii to wii u, and then you can upgrade the vc games from the wii vc (built in) to the wii u vc.

If you happen to purchase any titles on the Wii VC inside the Wii Menu on the Wii U which aren't yet available for the Wii U VC -- should they become available you will get the discount just the same.

Ok, since I bought Mega Man in the Wii menu of the Wii U, when it comes out this Thursday that means I should be able to transfer it to the Wii U and play it on the gamepad right?

It sure was. I remember putting my credentials in when I first got the Wii, and those game surveys sure did pile into my account whenever I bought something.

You will have to upgrade it, but yeah once it is released on the WiiU VC you can play it on the gamepad.

You could have just waited and gotten it on the VC for WiiU.

VC downloads on the Wii were tied to exactly ONE single console. No sharing or user account.

If you lost, sold, or otherwise broke that Wii, Nintendo held the sole discretion to run their transfer program.
