Nintendo of Europe working on Wii U eShop locked Mature content fix
Click Here to View Story

In Europe, you're only able to purchase mature Wii U eShop content during certain late-night hours. Not exactly the most user-friendly way to get things done. This is all because of German law, and Nintendo of Europe's headquarters happens to be in Germany.

Good news is, Nintendo is working on a fix. According to the latest ONM podcast, Nintendo is working to fix this issue, but no specific details were given. Let's hope this is cleared up early in 2013. Thanks to Axis1500 or the heads up!

Great to hear! Hoping it will be fixed soon.
Though where in the podcast do they say this? I couldn't find it, but was just jumping back and forth there, not listening to the whole thing.

Nice :) But I'm living in Germany, so I don't think they can do anything for me.

Great!

But I have to say again:
It is NOT a law in germany, but being discussed.

They can: e.g. Like Lovefilm enable the Post-Ident system (I was at my post office today to unlock my Lovefilm account for 18+ movies)
