Wii U will be region-locked, according to Famitsu

Posted on September 24, 2012 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Wii U

According to a Famitsu report, Wii U will be region-locked. This will likely be the case given how Nintendo approached the situation with the Wii and 3DS.

The publication wrote in a recent issue:

“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.”

Alright Nintendo… this means you can’t take forever to localize games like Xenoblade!
