Nintendo of Europe has decided to take a step in what could be considered by some as a ridiculous direction concerning mature content on the Wii U eShop.
After a few emails were sent to Nintendo Life saying that ZombiU and Assassin’s Creed 3 couldn’t be downloaded, they went to work to find out the problem. What they uncovered was a policy about mature content that Europe’s branch of Nintendo seems to be following.
The policy is that games such as ZombiU and Assassin’s Creed 3 are only downloadable from the eShop between the hours of 11pm-3am. In other words, users can only purchase these M-rated titles for 4 hours a day. This was done as a safety precaution for youngsters who wouldn’t think twice about downloading such games. Either they’d have to wait until 11pm, or get it in person from a store.
This policy is only applicable in Europe, so those under the America’s branch can rest easy.
