    I'm thinking to buy a second Wii U which probably is at 5.4 version and I'm going to use it for online gaming.

    Is it possible to move from my Wii U on 5.3.2 all my games saves updates to a 5.4 version Wii U?



    And also is it worth it or I shall search for a wii U with older updates than 5.0?

    To do a system transfer, both Wii U will be updated to the last firmware.
    After a transfer, ALL your data will be in the second Wii U and the first will be "empty"

    That's bad seems like my options are less. Maybe I have to search for Wii U with older firmware and keep it as is...

    I think that all actual Wii U in stores have a firmware less than 5.4 (maybe you can see for a Wind Waker, Mario and Luigi or Wii Party bundles).
    You could buy a new Wii U and never use it, and continue to use your actual Wii U, and update if you want

    I doubt they sell Wii U's updated to the latest version that just came out to the internets a month ago.
    You probably have a month or two for new shipments which might have the update.

    The web exploit doesnt work on 5.4, doesnt really matter though because there's no homebrew out and there wont be any for a while

    I'm wondering if homebrew will mean FOREVER OFFLINE. Is that a fact? A version spoofing seems possible?

    p.s. I love splatoon online can't live without it :P :P:P
