Nintendo has lifted the eShop age restriction in Europe which only allowed users to purchase 18+ rated content between the hours of 11pm and 3am. Adults can now browse and buy all games at any time of the day. This should come as good news for those of you who are eighteen and over and use the European eShop.
“Following analysis of the Parental Controls system on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS in cooperation with USK, the German Entertainment Software Self-Regulation Body, it was deemed that Nintendo’s Parental Control system is of very high quality and offers a remarkable level of protection for children. Nintendo’s Parental Control system was found to have proved itself in practice.”
“Nintendo always encourages parents to make use of Parental Controls to control access to content they deem inappropriate for their children.”
