    Hi guys, my brother bought a WiiU but his Zelda Wind Waker is still on mine and we wanted to transfer the game to his console, the fact is that we were about to try the transfer option but it says it will format my console, could you guys tell me if what we are trying to do is possible?

    PS: Sorry if this thread doesn't go here

    If the 3DS transfer mode gives any indication it is that you transfer the Wii U user profile in it's entirety, so you won't be able to just transfer the game.

    the thing is that we weren't able even to transfer the profile neither to log in with the nintendo network ID

    Sorry, I wouldn't know what to do. Perhaps just send an e-mail to big N regarding this issue. Perhaps they can help you out.

    My understanding from reading the instructions is both the target and source system get wiped in a transfer so it is all or nothing.

    Yeah I hear if you badger them for 20 or 30 minutes they will relent occasionally. Honey Badger don't give a shit about their stupid policies. :)

    I know with the 3ds, when you transfer everything, everything gets transferred. But I guess this isn't the case with the WiiU?

    It doesn't usually take much badgering honestly. They've been happy to help me anytime I've asked. They just need you to call them which is silly.

    Saved game management on Wii U is still non existant.

    Its console locked or even console and harddrive locked.

    It is kind of ridiculous
