BJQ1972 commented on LostWinds Now Available For Wii to Wii U Transfer:

@Jampie thanks for the clarification. I assume that Nintendo UK haven't completed the steps they need to to make this process possible - they have uploaded the updated Lost Winds, but maybe they need to tupdate some other things server side to let the transfer tool know that Lost Winds can be transferred.

If people have transferred successfully can they post what region they are in, please?

Tried this again this morning and it does not work. Since I did a transfer yesterday it tells me I have no data to transfer, and exits the transfer tool. Lost Winds in not available in Wii shop in Wii Mode either.

I have a suspicion that some people are getting mixed up with Lost Winds Winter Of The Melodias which has always been available in Wii mode.

Hmmm, so the developers of games like Retro City Rampage and Steamworld Dig praise the new eShop, and the developer of a very basic match 3 puzzle game is very negative about Nintendo. There's a reason that some games sell nothing, and it isn't because of a lack of support from Nintendo.

If Nintendo keep the sort of tat that has overrun the AppStore off eShop then surely that can only be a good thing.

@Einherjar doing the transfer a second time doesn't cause any problems but as I've said above the Lost Winds transfer still doesn't work anyway.

I did try to repurchase in Wii mode, before i tried the transfer, but it is not available in the Wii shop channel on Wii U.

OK I've done the transfer, and guess what? I updated Lost Winds, and used the transfer tool and it transferred nothing.

It even said that Lost Winds was not transferrable when I ran the transfer tool.

Can Nintendo actually do anything right?

I think many people are underestimating the amount of work that localisation involves. It isn't just a matter of translating the text but also making sure it makes sense culturally. The English on the NA and EU versions will most likely be very different, and the same would be the case with FR and ES translations.

Any info on price for people who have transferred the game from their Wii? Any similar discounts to the NES and SNES games?

Edit: just checked. It does say preferential price for Wii version owners but doesn't say how much.

@RawkHawk013 It is quite likely that the reason that this service is being closed is more insidious than most of the people commenting on this thread believe, so how can any attempt at supporting the protection of children be a joke?

These kids might think they are swapping photos with a child of similar age but it is just as likely to be a middle aged deviant, or alternatively it could be a kid of the same age who just wants to display their pictures to everybody else at school. Either way lives are ruined because the natural curiosity of that age is violated.

This isn't the PAL version of the game is it? The version released in the EU on Wii U is the US version. You should correct the icon at the top of the review. (I am assuming that you have reviews the Wii U version rather than picking a copy on a UK SNES.)

The main problem, that most people didn't realise was that that you had to play it through to the end before you could play the levels properly. One of Rare's best. Like a lot of Rare games a walk through is advisable.

You can't expect a big game from all of Nintendo's franchises every year, but many people do and they are the ones who are always disappointed after an E3. I thought the games look great and I know that they will be working on their other franchises for the future. One thing that is disappointing is the lack of 3rd party support.

I remember the excitement of a Birthday or Toy Day on the GC version, hoping a NES game would appear in my post box - only to be met with crushing disappointment. It's like waiting for VC releases on a Thursday.

Considering Ubisoft have already said there is an improvement in AI on the PS4 version this is surprising. I wonder if, when this sells many more copies on PS3 than PS4, Ubisoft will panic and scale back development.

As for sony, I know seven years ago was a long time ago but I can't believe they can't remember that having simultaneous releases on both PS2 and PS3 impacted PS3 take up. Oh, but of course, the PS4 version in this case has immersive touchscreen features. All, what 1" of it?

No native backwards compatibility, and not being able to transfer/play PSN purchases on the PS4 will be a difficult sell.

The fact that they are already announcing games like Watch Dogs will ship on PS3 AND PS4 shows that Sony have learned nothing from the previous generation transition.

I still remember Burnout 2 very fondly on the GameCube. Criterion are an excellent developer.

It was a shame that their owners pulled them away from developing for Nintendo consoles. Nice to see that they have once again made the extra effort with a port to a Nintendo system.
