So I transferred all of my downloaded games and saves to the Wii U when I got it and I just paid the $1.50 to upgrade my Zelda ALTTP game, but when I start it up it doesn't have my saved game. do I have to move my file somewhere to get it to load?

No, any save except for some game such as Wii Fit do not transfer from your Wii (or Wii mode) to your Wii U. Sorry bud you got to start over in that game.

Umm… Care to have some gravy?

I think the save file cannot be transferred. I believe that was a limitation for the upgrade

That's a pity. Is the save game really lost? Or can you play the old save game in the Wii-Mode?

You can still use your Wii data in Wii mode if you transferred from Wii to Wii U.

The ONLY limitation is that you can't use the data for the Wii U version (with Gamepad/Miiverse).
