    digital Wii game save files

    Does anyone know about the Wii games available on the Wii U eshop; do they use the save files from the vWii?
    So if, for instance I had played Super Mario Galaxy from disc on my virtual Wii, (or on my old Wii which I transferred to Wii U) if I then bought game from the Wii U eshop would it continue the same save data file? Is it rather somehow tied to save data in Wii U data management?
    I also am kind of wondering, if some one had bricked their virtual Wii due to some failed softmod or something would these Wii games from the Wii U eshop get broken as well? From what I have heard launching the game basically puts the console in vWii mode so I was curious.

    I'm not sure about using the same save file for a digital and physical version of the same game, but I do know Wii games downloaded from the Wii U eshop are considered vWii software, separate from the Wii U stuff.

    I played Metroid Prime Trilogy on the disk for a few months before they released it on the Wii U and it did carry over my save file.

    I guess that's pretty cool. Thanks for your input.

    I don't think they come around often anymore. The only mods left are kahhhhle, GameNChick, and Switch and I haven't seen any of them (other than switch' s single post today) at all for a long time.

    Huh. Why does it seem like anyone who's appointed mod gets kidnapped?

    I used to be a mod but had to step down because I had more important things to worry about at the time. Maybe that's why I didn't get kidnapped... Hmmmm

    I don't necessarily see anything wrong with that post, anyway. He played the Wii version in Wii mode, and the saves carried over when he bought the version they released on the Wii U. Unless I missed something that got edited, or something.

    I've been thinking about you. Are things looking up for you?

    They're starting to. I'm actually working on getting training in medical laboratory science, which is more broadly applicable than a master's in molecular genetics. It uses my skill set and it's something I think I'd like doing

    I didn't catch that. We had a guy a while back that came and started a bunch of new threads that were exact copies of ancient threads, and people didn't catch on right away.

    Awesome, man! I hope that works out for you.
