You cannot redownload games on a different system.

Make sure to grab your umbrella, it's raining puns out there.

Unfortunately Superjoon, Nintendo hasn't set up the WiiU yet to be purely account-based, but they are working on it. Purchases are still tied to the console right now.

Yeah I am afraid that you will need to purchase all your games again since its a different system. YOu can try contacting Nintendo and tell them your problems they might be able to help that thats the only thing really you can do.

There was a particular Wii U user who experienced this kind of situation before. An article was written about it where that particular Wii U user ended up calling Nintendo & was given download points to redownload the games he owned plus extra download points for inconvenience.

Yea, definitely get in touch with Nintendo. It's amazing what you can accomplish with a little bargaining over the phone.

Financial issues and at the time I would have been able to make my money back on it, so seemed the obvious choice. But now all is good and I miss my Wii U

The Nintendo ID is a joke. You don´t have any downloads in your account, only in your memory system (it is the same as the Wii).
