Wii U purchase/data transfer system in the works

Though Nintendo hasn't announced solid plans, the company does plan to let you transfer your purchases and save data from the Wii to the Wii U. At a developer roundtable this evening, Nintendo Land producer Katsuya Eguchi said the company is "readying a system" that will allow the transfers.

This fits with Nintendo's steps toward a digital approach, having allowed a similar transfer from the DSi to 3DS. The company didn't announce whether the functionality would be available at launch.
