I played Zelda Breath of the Wild on my friend's Wii U. However, I have recently bought myself a Wii U and a copy of the game. Is there a way to transfer data over to my Wii U? I used my own profile when playing the game. Thanks!

  • Haven't tested this, so I'm not posting it as an answer, but can't you stick a USB drive into your friend's Wii U, move the save data onto it, then plug the drive into your own Wii U and play off of it? You might need to extract the save data from it into the game data from your purchased copy. – DonielF Aug 3 '17 at 5:15
  • No, you can't. The USB drive is formatted for an unique wiiu. The pendrive would be usable only on his friend's console. – Spidey Aug 8 '17 at 10:52

Sadly it is not possible to move saved data from one Wii U console to another one there are several articles on this on Nintendo's support site. All detail the same answer. This particular one breaks it down in a pretty simple way.
