It's not a lot of work per game, but if you were to do all of them then it would be a lot of work. In the newest Nintendo Direct video, they said that some games you transfer over you'll need to redownload. Do they already have some of the vc games updated? It's a pretty trivial task if they're keeping the VC going. I think we all assume, and with good reason, that they'll want to keep selling these games. We assume that when they do so they'll want to do it with support for the hardware that comes in the box. So there's a damn good chance that they'll do the trivial update to each game so they can sell another million copies of Super Mario Bros. Why not let people who have already paid for those games play the largely-the-same Wii U version? Oh and the re-download thing. I'm fairly sure they were saying that the transfer process only copies the games stored on the Wii system memory. Because of that the titles you have stored on the SD card might have to be redownloaded. Not sure whether it's worth reading into that too much.

Did you need to pay for those games again, or were they updated free of charge? How were the eShop versions improved? The update was free. I wasn't an ambassador, so I don't know all the details myself. But I believe it pretty much just added save state functionality. We got early versions of the games that weren't upto the standard of the normal VC titles. There was no NES icon on the menu, no save states as you mentioned but that was about the only difference. Once the full versions were releaced we were given the option to update to the final version next time we opened the eShop. I wouldn't be surprised if they do something similar with the VC on the Wii U TBH. Some good Aussie musics: King Gizzard, Pond, The Avalanches "Don't stir the pot" is a nice way of saying "they're too dumb to reason with"
