So, as was noted by @BlueBarren, both the Wii U and the Switch have the ability to have multiple profiles. Some of us have always just gone along with a singular profile with no need to have any additional profiles...
If you want to have more than one game state saved in Breath of the Wild, we can simply make a profile for each player that would like to ...
You will need to purchase the Wii LAN Adapter for that. The official adapter is compatible with Wii, Wii U, and Switch. Note that this will occupy a USB port on your console.
According to Nintendo Support, regular USB to Ethernet adapters might not work with the Wii U. This likely also applies to the Wii and possibly also the Switch. You could try using an ...
Your sons must be friends with one another on their Wii U's through the Miiverse. According to this Reddit:
You have to add friends to play with them. You can add them in your friends list or through Miiverse!
You should be able to configure all of this on the Wii U itself, but if not, you can use the Miiverse link above.
Once they are friends with ...
Because those games are on the Wii Virtual Console, they require some kind of controller that the Wii (not the Wii U) knows about - the system is operating without access to any of the Wii U specific stuff when you're doing this.
That means you need either a GameCube controller, or a Classic Controller attachment for a Wii Remote - and since a Wii U doesn't ...
From the Nintendo Switch FAQ:
What controllers work with Nintendo Switch?
There are multiple controller options for the Nintendo Switch console, including Joy-Con controllers and the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller. Compatible controllers will vary per game, so be sure to check game details. You can see available accessories here.
You answered your own question already since you already lost a console to a power outage.
No. Seriously, don't do that.
Never update your console or any other device's firmware (system software), without a reliable power supply.
While simple software updates (apps, games, ..) are not prone to kill your console the system software is. You can always ...
This usually means the GamePad is showing an advertisement or you have some other notification. You should be able to disable these notifications in the GamePad Quick Start menu settings.

You can link a single ID to your 3DS and Wii U (this is a fairly recent change). But the games are not "cross buy" in any way similar to the Playstation ecosystem. You can upgrade Wii VC games to Wii U (only if they physically reside on the Wii U console), but buying [GAME] on Wii U, much less Wii, doesn't entitle you to [GAME] on 3DS even if [GAME] is on ...
The Wii U has no built-in GameCube support at all, similar to late-model Wiis - that's why there aren't any controller ports, or memory card ports. (The GameCube controller adapter only works with Super Smash Bros., at least for now.)
You'll need to keep a Wii or GameCube around to play your GameCube games.
The "Year-2038-Problem" is related to the fact that most Unix / Linux systems store timestamps as the amount of seconds since 1970. That way, a signed 32-bit value will overflow in 2038.
Both Gamecube and Wii (I'm not sure about WiiU but I suspect it'll be the same) are storing their time as an unsigned integer with seconds since 2000 (), so it'll ...
Yes, but note that both games require the Nunchuck attachment as well.
Twilight Princess requires any kind of Remote, and a Nunchuck attachment.
Skyward Sword requires a Remote, MotionPlus, and a Nunchuck attachment.
There are two versions of the original Remote (or "Wiimote"):
The original Remote has more limited motion ...
Nintendo does not release any changelogs.
The only ones that exist are crowdsourced by Smashboards and r/smashbros reddit, and are done by just people noting things and testing on an unpatched system.
I do diffs of the raw data files and upload them to my website here, but I haven't done the new patch yet.
The Amiibo will not unlock that character. The Amiibo just becomes an AI controlled character, which can be placed on your team or play against you.
There is no difference between the different versions of the game.
Actually, you're dad was probably referring to finding all the exits from all the levels in the game
In the Super Nintendo version of the game, there are 96 exits total. These are tracked on the load game screen immediately after the title screen.
Finding all of them will put a star next to the exit count.
Having a Wii U, TV, and BotW, I can say that one can play BotW on the Wii U without ever needing to connect to a TV.
During the first cutscene, it will assume it is connected to a TV, but there will be a textbox on the gamepad screen that says, "touch here to play on the gamepad," or something like that, and it will pull the video down onto the gamepad for ...
The requirements to unlock each stage can be found in this blog post:
Kongo Jungle 64: Clear the "The Original Heavy Weights" event in Event Match (single player).
Smashville: Clear the "Playing Tricks" event in Event Match (single player).
Pokemon Stadium 2: Clear the "Lightning Strikes" event in Event Match (single player).
As Amiibo level up, their stats will increase. This will lead to Amiibo being statistically more powerful than other players when custom characters are turned off. You can customize how their stats increase by feeding them equipment, but they will increase even if you don't. The total of Amiibo stats (attack + defense + speed) cannot exceed 120.
You were given a download code for the Wii U version when you bought the 3DS DLC. This page details how to get that download code and then use it on the Wii U:
1. The Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS
The download code for the Wii U content included in the "3DS & Wii U" option will be listed on the Receipt. You can view the Receipt by going to the ...
No, the Wii U and Switch games are separate products.
At this time the Switch has no connectivity with other Nintendo hardware. The only linkage on the console is that the friends list has awareness to the lists in their mobile apps.
The wheel icon is shown when the player is using tilt steering with the Wiimote-only controls. It does not matter whether the wheel accessory is involved, which cannot be detected anyway, as it is just a plastic shell around the controller.
That is the location of the NFC reader/writer built into the gamepad (see page 8):
NFC (near-field communication) location
Built-in NFC feature allows the system to read or write to an enabled card or other device.
This works with Wii U software exclusively designed to use this feature
(see game packaging for compatibility information)
To the ...
Open the Mii Creation.
Under "User Settings" choose "View/Modify user information", skip the body editing and you can change your nickname.
Now, if you press the small keyboard icon (near "z") on the keaboard on screen you can access every special keyboards and characters.
What you're looking for is under SYMBOL:
In the third page you can find the ...
All of the old Wii controllers and accessories still work with a Wii U, as long as the games are prepared for them.
The Wii Remote is the standard controller as it was originally released with the Wii.
The Wii Nunchuck and Wii MotionPlus are accessories to a Wii Remote - they plug into the bottom. The Nunchuck is a secondary controller with an analog stick,...
Yes, you can re-download as often as you'd like.
Note, however, that the eShop purchases are (currently) tied to the console, not your Nintendo Network ID. That means that if your Wii U itself dies, you need to get it repaired by Nintendo in order to preserve your purchases.
We finally found the answer. You must have a Nunchuk connected to the controller. If you don't, it doesn't tell you in any way. It just won't connect at all.
Also, I found that it never works on the Wii version, except in Toy Box, but that limitation does not apply to the Wii U.
