Confirmed: Wii U Will Be Region Locked

Perhaps unsurprisingly, news has emerged today that the Wii U will be region locked. So if you buy a Wii U console in Europe, you’ll only be able to play games bought in Europe.

Nintendo have had this policy since the days of the NES so we’re not exactly surprised to hear this news. There was an inkling of speculation that the Wii U may be region free, what with Sony and Microsoft leaving it to publishers themselves to decide whether to lock the game or not, but Nintendo have quashed it by confirming with CVG that it will be region locked.

Are you disappointed the Wii U will be region locked, or does it not matter to you?
