You Can Now Transfer Content Between Two Wii Us

By Leon Hurley on at

The latest 5.1.0 U firmware will let you transfer all content from a 'source' Wii U to a 'target'. Doing so will wipe the source console and the transfer will, according to the FAQ, swap "content from the source console, including any users, Nintendo Network IDs, save data, and digital content" so that it replaces everything on the target console too. The instructions look more tedious than hard.

To perform the swap you'll need an SD card large enough to hold system and save data (game data is downloaded separately) as well as both consoles connected to the internet and a Gamepad for each to communicate via IR.
