    I think as long as the wii u has not been formatted, and as long as you have not removed the NNID that you bought the DLC with, then the ticket is still there on the NAND of the Wii U.

    I think you should be able to open up e-shop and simply download the DLC, but I'm not sure...

    Hello,

    Recover Pikmin 3 with WiiU usb helper and Install DLC with yMOD wupinstaller, and this should work.

    Make sure everything is in the same folder

    The DLC should be on the same device of the game. You need to move the DLC from the internal memory to the USB and than install it on the USB with wup installer. Or just install it on the internal storage.

    it works. so for if someone else needs something sim miler this is how it is done:

    I moved the dlc from internal to usb drive. when I did that the machine tells you that it will overwrite something. That was allright with me.
    And then the previous install I did with wup installer was indeed gone. I then installed it again to usb with wup and it al works perfectly
    thanks for the help!
