Nintendo Confirms Ability to Transfer Wii Data to Wii U

This includes WiiWare and Virtual Console games, as well as saves.

Tonight's developer roundtable has brought to light that players will be able to transfer all of their Wii data to their Wii U. Purchased goods from the Wii Shop Channel, namely WiiWare and Virtual Console games, as well as saves can all be brought over.

The method to do so is not clear at this time, but Nintendo will likely be revealing more information in the near future. An E3 interview revealed that Nintendo will be restructuring their system to support a more unified user ID to bind together purchases. This account could be unique to each user of the system or for the system at large - the details have yet to be finalized.

Super Meat Boy Forever Review

Ten years ago, we were given a gift in the form of Super Meat Boy on Xbox Live Arcade. At the time, we’d never really seen anything like it. Smaller indie downloadable games were really just starting to enter the mainstream consciousness of gaming and Super Meat Boy effectively kicked the door in and made clear that these smaller titles had something special to offer and were here to stay. And since that statement, myriad other developers have taken lessons from Super Meat Boy and its DNA can be seen in so many games that would follow. However, this creates an interesting predicament that Team Meat needed to solve - how do you offer a sequel that manages to bring something new to the table, while still feeling as simple and approachable (and difficult) as the original did?
