Nintendo of Europe is prohibiting European users from accessing the Wii U’s eShop for games and trailers rated PEGI 18+ between 3:00 and 23:00.
Under these circumstances, the four-hour window of 23:00 to 3:00 is the only time users can purchase games like ZombiU or Assassin’s Creed III or even view trailers for such games.
The story originated from a NeoGAF forum user, which reportedly received an email from Nintendo saying the following:
Dear customer, we would like to let you know that Nintendo has always aimed to offer gameplay experiences suited to all age groups, observing carefully all the relevant regulations regarding content access that are present in the various European countries. We have thus decided to restrict the access to content which is unsuitable to minors (PEGI) to the 11 p.m.- 3 a.m. time window.
