Wii U Virtual Console Games Won’t Work With Older Save Files

Jason Schreier: ''You won't be able to transfer save games from your Wii's Virtual Console to your Wii U's Virtual Console, Nintendo has confirmed to Kotaku.''

The story is too old to be commented.

This is starting to feel like a massive cluster f***. The save data isn't a huge thing and more of just an inconvenience but that with $1 re-buying is getting silly. There must have been a better way of doing this

Play it in Wii mode for free with your old save? Problem solved? And for the last damn time, you're not rebuying the game, it's an optional upgrade.

It is a bummer that the game saves don't transfer, but thankfully I never purchased any really long VC games. Except maybe Paper Mario. Frankly I'd prefer they work on cross buying between the Wii U VC and the 3DS VC anyway.

"you're not rebuying the game, it's an optional upgrade"

A disturbing amount of people on this site would rather do a quick knee-jerk reaction than actually read carefully on topics. Not just this, but anything.

The Wii was hacked like no tomorrow, so Nintendo doesn't want the Wii U communicate with its OG Wii mode.

That's kind of ghetto on Nintendo's part.would love to carry over saves to the gamepad while I'm playing the titles I already purchased and had to add an "upgrade" to for the new system

You can still play the games you bought. You're not getting ripped off, stop acting like you are.

Nobody said anything about getting ripped off genius. Just said it'd be nice to carry over saved games. Get your nintendo fanboy blinders off and realize how stupid this is on their part you dildo

This isn't news.
Why was this approved? We've known this for months.
