Of course it will work but when you change major base it is recommended to wipe. Recommended doesn't mean that you will face issues if you don't but it's better for stability, battery and performance. If you don't wipe and later you want to troubleshoot a battery drain issue let's say, you won't know if it was caused due to some old libraries that remained there or to something new. You could also avoid wiping and just keep it in mind to wipe when first issues are encountered.
