Question Possible to restore Virtual Console games after Wii factory reset

Hi all,

Quick question - is it possible to restore virtual console games if I factory reset my Wii console? I see that can be copied to an SD card but am unclear if they can restored to the same Wii console after a factory reset.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I’m fairly certain the Wii shop is closed and the network is off. I think you might be out of luck. :-(

Thanks lastplace09 - appreciate the response.

I reformatted my Wii and when I went to the Wii shop I was able to redownload my VC games without any issues. It looks like the Wii shop is available to download games until Jan. 2019 (IIRC). However I believe you can no longer add Wii points to your account.

Thanks!
