    Well... i don´t really understand you´re cuestion, but if you have downloaded the game files, then u can install it in any USB 25+ that you want with Wup Installer.

    Maybe I did not explain myself.

    To use wup installer we have to copy the game to a sd card, then using wup we can copy to the USB.

    The question is, can we copy the game to an USB then using wup install it to another USB??

    Reaaaaaly good question, i have never thinked before... interesting, but no you can´t. The apps must be always launched by an SD card.

    Ok thanks a lot, I was asking this because I have 32 gb usb but only 16 gb sd card which makes me impossible to install this particular game.

    Thanks

    Yes man i´m sorry, but just wait until you get one, cause Xenoblade X is a Beautiful game... in graphics i think is the most beautiful wii u game.

    I think there is a mocha cfw mod that supports fat32 usb. I believe (haven’t tried it myself) that you can run this cfw and install a game from the usb drive

    But that can only install to sysNAND (from FAT32). You have to clear enough space on internal storage, install the game, then move it to the other USB drive.

    You must use an sd card to install with wupinstaller. You can install TO a usb drive though.

    I would suggest getting a SD card like 128GB for copying file around, and get a USB HDD to install games on with a Y cable, no need to have USB 3.0 HDD.
