Wii U Region Locked

Do you want to play some Japanese or European games on your Wii U upon release? Well unfortunately that feature will not be allowed by Nintendo. It was announced yesterday that the Wii U will be region locked on all the consoles, meaning if you have a Japanese Wii U you can only play games from that region of the world. You can't play Japanese games on a North American console or European console and vice versa upon release.

This same limitation has been put in place for the Wii, and the Nintendo Gamecube, but players around the world discovered ways around the system and set up their consoles to play those games. I'm sure gamer's will of course find ways to get around the system that Nintendo will put in place but Nintendo will not be supporting it by any means upon launch of the new console.
