LostWinds Not Transferable to Wii U (Updated)

Frontier, the developer of LostWinds, has notified a fan on Twitter that they are working with Nintendo on a solution to this problem. I’ll stay on this and provide another update when the information becomes available.


Earlier today I put together a fairly comprehensive guide for transferring WiiWare and Virtual Console games to the Wii U, but it seems not every title will be transferable. LostWinds, one of the first big WiiWare titles, cannot be transferred to the Wii U. The reason for this is unknown at the moment, but many new Wii U owners have reported this as being the only title, at least so far, that can’t be transferred to the Wii U.

    Yup, it surprises me that so few games are not transferable. There were five or six DSiWare games that couldn’t make the move too.

      I forgot that this was a problem with the 3DS and DSiWare games actually. Frontier is actually working on a solution with Nintendo now, so hopefully this is fixed up shortly.
