    With Xenoblade having just been release on the Wii U Virtual Console I was wondering if anyone knew if it was possible to use a Dolphin save file with the Wii U VC version and to later take that save file off the Wii U and continue on Dolphin again.

    Thanks

    No, it wouldn't work because to my knowledge there is no way to copy a save file onto (or from) a Wii U.

    EDIT: Turns out that you can copy the save data from the Wii U to an HDD, but it's bundled with the game itself, and there is no way to just copy the save file.

    Yes they do store the data on the vwii. I can confirm because my Wii u version of Metroid Prime trilogy used the same save as my USB loader version.

    Wrong, the Wii U wii VC games use the vwii to run it, and also use the vwii saves.
