You Can Now Transfer Your Minecraft Save From Wii U To Switch

Not a lot of games sold great on the Wii U, but Minecraft is one of the few that did, and Nintendo wants to help those players move their save file over to the Switch version.

Nintendo announced that Wii U-to-Switch save transfer is now available for people with both versions of the game. First, make sure your Wii U is updated and connected to the internet. Then do the same for the Switch, making sure both games are installed.

Once you launch the Wii U version, make sure you're online, select your save file, and then hit Transfer to Switch. From there, you follow the prompts on your Switch and you should be good to go!

Minecraft came out on the Switch earlier this year, with Microsoft announcing that version's inclusion in the "Better Together" update. This allows the Switch version to crossplay with all other versions of the game, except for PlayStation 4 and Vita. The Better Together update is live on Xbox One, Mobile, and PC, but will roll out for the Switch later this year.
