Wii U Will Be Region Locked

September 24, 2012

The latest issue of Japanese Gaming Magazine Famitsu has revealed that the console will be region locked. This means you won’t be able to play games from Japan or Europe on a North American console and vice-versa. This news was expected as every Nintendo console since the DS Lite, including the Wii, has been region locked. Read what Famitsu said below:

“What can be played on the Wii U is restricted by a region-lock feature; software not sold in the same region cannot be played.”
