    Hi all :)

    Is there any way to transfer my Wii games saves to my Wii U?

    I have both consoles modded and I tought I had just to copy those games saves from Wii SD card to Wii U SD card, but... the way I was wrong -_-

    I really enjoy playing Wii games on Wii U but I don't feel like starting ever game I own over again...

    Thank you for your help :)

    Why don't you try, idk, doing a system transfer.
    Or perhaps using the copy save function

    You should just be able to copy your game's save files from your old Wii onto the SD card in the System Settings, and then install them through the System Settings on your Wii U's vWii. Note that you'll have to have played the game on the Wii U for the save file to be transferred.

    The fact is I have like 50 games saves, but I don't have 50 Wii games, if you know what I mean, so there's no way for me to play the "original" games on Wii U and then attempt that SD copy/paste thing...

    Regardless of whether you've played the game on the Wii U, some games that use WiFi, like Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom, or Smash Bros., and some that don't just can't be moved to the SD card via the copy save function. A system transfer would work. If there's a homebrew method for this, I've never messed with it.
