But let me guess - there's no way to bring my wiiU VC or 3DS VC purchases over, even though they are all noted in my MyNintendo Account?

You can't make that assumption. Nintendo has not made an announcement about VC yet, unfortunately.



Better late than never?!

considering how Ninty has operated with things like this, why cant he not assume?

so.... 14 years late?

Well what is the benefit of it on the PS4 and XB1? I mean the Switch doesnt have Achievements/Trophies and you couldnt redownload your PSN and XBLA games onto the PS4 and XB1 anyway.

I'm pretty sure somebody already answered but

-Almost every PSP game I bought got transferred to my Vita

-Xbox One BC. I have over 200 digital purchases on Xbox 360. A ton of them run on Xbox One

-Cross buy on PS consoles. I could buy Flower or Journey on PS3 and get updated versions on PS4 or even PSVita.

-A few Xbox 360 games (like Castle Crashers) grant you the free Xbox One version

-All of your paid apps (Netflix, Hulu, etc) are waiting for you on your 8th gen console. You don't even have to sign in again. All of your info carries over.

-Your friends, messages, Trophies, etc carry over.

-If you bought a video or something on PS3/PSP/Vita/Xbox 360, it's in your library on your 8th gen console.

Better late than never would have been fine in 2011 when the 3DS came out.

But they pushed it wayyyyyy too far.

So does this mean we have to buy all the VC games from our WiiU yet again?

Most probably.

My 3DS purchases on the same account later used for WiiU didn't carry over, so I've no faith in Nintendo allowing WiiU purchases to carry over to Switch

Well, your 3DS purchases only do that when they are cross play. This is more a Wii to Wii U situation, so I think there's a good chance you will just need to pay a $1-$2 fee. Though yeah, given the amount of times they've asked us to repurchase many of these games, they should just be free.

Also, if your console gets lost, broken or stolen, carrying over your account and purchases is a simple matter of signing in on a new console.

Really late, but better than never!

Not sure if that actually means you can transfer your VC games though
