"The saves are saved to the Wii U internal memory save, not the external. You can also use a SD card for more storage if you want to, just like with Wii."


sorry if this is answered in a nother topic or something i haven't looked.. but can you transfer wii saves from your SD card to your Wii U?
i know on the Wii you had to play the game before you could move data *for whatever reasons* so does this still appy to the Wii U?

i hope that makes enough sense..

@Gaming Freak

You can use SD cards, you just need an USB adapter to plug it into the USB port of the Wii U to be readable.

Are you asking about transferring individual Wii saves to the Wii U's Wii mode via SD card? (IE, not doing a full system transfer)

Yes, individual saves can be transferred but the actual game disc must at least be in the console at the time for the save to be transferred.

I can confirm this to be true. The Wii U essentially becomes a Wii when you're in Wii Mode, so the Wii U will act exactly like a Wii.
