Nintendo European eShop Removes 18+ Restriction

Nintendo of Europe has removed its restrictions on the sale of 18+ rated games through the company’s Wii U and 3DS eShop.

They issued a statements to its customers: “”Nintendo has lifted the access restrictions content rated 18+. Adults can now browse and buy all games at any time of the day.”

“Following analysis of the Parental Controls system on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS in cooperation with USK, the German Entertainment Software Self-Regulation Body, it was deemed that Nintendo’s Parental Control system is of very high quality and offers a remarkable level of protection for children. Nintendo’s Parental Control system was found to have proved itself in practice.

“Nintendo always encourages parents to make use of Parental Controls to control access to content they deem inappropriate for their children.”

So if you’re an adult, you can now shop anytime of day or night for 18+ games.
