Wii U mature content restrictions 'due to German law'

German regulations are the cause of a restriction that reserves mature rated Wii U eShop purchases to the hours between 11pm and 3am, Nintendo has claimed.

In a statement sent to CVG Nintendo of Europe said it is bound to abide by the regulations as it is based in Germany. (Nintendo, Wii U)

I agree. It may be a bit of a logistical mess to move the offce somewhere else but the restriction is extremely un-user friendly for european gamers

It's kinda ridiculous to have such laws in place. Especially for Germany. As an American looking from the outside in, I'd think Germany would be more open minded considering they have such a highly educated populous.
