Step 2: Select Bedrock as the Output Edition

Click Bedrock to select it as the target output edition.


You'll notice a drop-down menu for selecting different target versions. This can be useful if you're trying to get more advanced with your world conversion, but for most cases you'll want to leave it on the latest version.

For reference: Minecraft Wii U edition never made it past 1.6.0 Bedrock equivalent.

Click Next to continue.

Step 3: Conversion Options

This panel allows you to control certain technical aspects of how the conversion should run. Thankfully, for Wii U to Bedrock conversion you'll usually want to leave these at their default values.


One very important setting you'll likely want to keep enabled is the Allow Older Chunk Versions feature. It is crucial to ensuring you don't have any holes or empty spots in your world.

Step 4: Convert

It's the big moment!

Click Start Conversion to begin.


The UMT will now scan the input world and perform all the necessary conversion steps to create a super-accurate clone of your world for Bedrock edition.

Step 5: Save the Bedrock World

After conversion, pick a spot to save the output world.

Click Save World to bring up the save window.


If you have Minecraft Windows 10 edition installed, the UMT will default to the install location of your Windows 10 edition worlds. Otherwise, you must pick somewhere else to put it.

Enter a name for the world, and click Save.


Step 6: Transfer and Play

Congratulations! You've successfully converted the world.

Depending on where you play Bedrock edition, you may need to transfer the world to the right platform first. Check out the other platform-specific guides for more info.
