Wiikey U - WiiUkey (uk3y) Solderless WiiU Optical Drive Emulator

CODE: WiiUkey preorder

Price: $114.95


Update December 2015 - Still not here

Project might be dead so we are suspending preorders even though we never charged any cards. We will re-enable if there is anymore news.



Preorder risk free - No deposit needed!!! -  item is NOT in stock yet

Update: October 2014 - WiiKey U is still not here, there are no major updates from the team so we cannot accurately predict the date in which the product will be released. However we are not taking funds for you to RESERVE a device, so there is still no risk in preordering. The Corbra UDE has also been announced. We won't list this up yet but we will be happen to change a WiiKey U preorder into a Cobra UDE order if the device comes out first!

  • Cheap $4.5 shipping to US customers
  • No risk preorder, If we lower the price before product release you will pay the cheapest price we have it for!!
  • Local Warranty within the US!
  • Installation options will be available when the product is released
  • Shipping to over 120 countries!

Please note that our webste software ALWAYS says that something is in stock if it is available to order, we cannot change this. This item is not in stock, the item is still being made!

ETA from the time was given at around Mid July to late August. However in the past we have seen projects like x360key and 3k3y delayed by many months. If you are preordering, you are commiting to purchase the product and you will be first in line to get the product as soon as we get stock in. We where first in the world to get x360key and 3k3y stock! If you want to cancel your order at any time, you can. We will be charging peoples credit card closer to date of shipping, if you want to cancel AFTER we charge your card it will attract a 7% credit card fee, which will cover our charges. If you cancel before, there will be no charge at all.


The WiiKey U is a solderless modchip, however you will stil need to open your console, and you need to be technically minded enough to follow instructions!

Becuase the WiiU does not have any multimedia controls, the team does not know yet if they are able to project a list of games up on the TV screen, like with the x360key and 3k3y....at this point in time it is suggest that you use the little LCD screen. We have made this screen optional, becuase it is possible that you already have a screen from your x360key/3k3y and you can use that.  The beauty about us not charging credit cards for the preorder is that you are able to change your order in any way before shipping (adding or removing components)

Wiikey U Vs Nintendo Updates

Hardware hacks are great, once they are installed and configured it is hard for console manufacturers to block the device. The WiiKey U make no claims to be able to be 100% resiliant to software updates from Nintendo, it is a 3rd party device, not approved, endorsed  by Nintendo at all. The great thing about the device is that is can be upgraded. The software can easily be upgraded via USB from the same harddrive you are loading content off. Updates are free, and will be available on the WiiKey U forums (K3yforums.com). 

In time, Nintendo might block the key extaction method, or change up the DVD drive security in new models, but this will not affect people that already have the device installed in their system, it will only affect new customers wanting to get the device installed.
