Purchasing mature content from the European Wii U eShop is... inconvenient. Currently, consumers can only buy such titles between 11 PM and 3 AM due to a law originating from Germany.

But in its latest podcast, ONM claims that a fix is in the works. If true, one would think that Wii U users wouldn't be as limited when it comes to mature content on the eShop.

Take this update with a grain of salt until Nintendo of Europe makes an official comment.

YES! Angry emails paid off :D Obviously many others complained. I feel bad that I was harsh but it's tough love to get the right result and I think others felt the same.

"Glad I live in Australia..."
I can't tell if that's sarcasm or not. Australia is right up there with Germany.
