Virtual Console purchases can be transferred to Wii U

If you’ve downloaded any games from Wii’s Virtual Console service and intend to snag yourself a Wii U in the future, the big N has your back. In a recent interview with ABC News, Scott Moffitt of Nintendo of America confirmed that owners of such downloadable titles will be able to transfer their past purchases directly to the company’s new console. The article makes no explicit mention of WiiWare games, but we can assume the same concept applies for any of the Wii Shop channel’s downloadable games.
