If you happen to buy a used Wii U console, you’ll be able to re-download any content that a previous owner purchased. This ability to download old content is in lieu of accounts being removed from the system or the hard drive being reformatted. The content that is downloaded to the WiiU console is linked to the hardware itself rather than being linked to the account. This begs the question, what if your WiiU crashes and you want to transfer your account to a new machine? Will your content be available to restore?
