Slowly but surely.
It may seem like an obvious thing, but then Nintendo's never taken the straight path to modernization. The Wii U has just now been updated with the ability to transfer the entirety of a user account from one Wii U to another, much how the transfer from Wii to Wii U works.
Found within the system settings, the System Transfer option requires that you upload all of your data into an SD card and physically carry it from one Wii U to another, holding within it your Nintendo Network ID and all of your Wii U data and settings. Nintendo Network IDs cannot be transferred on their own. That will take a lengthy call to Nintendo support.
It's not a simple process, so Nintendo's thrown up an entire support page for those looking to transfer.
The update also brings a small but meangful change to the eShop. Users can now navigate it with the Pro Controller, Wii Remote and Classic Controller, in addition to the GamePad.
