    Newbie

    Hi Guys,

    I'm a newbie at forums as well as a newbie in a Wii.
    Just got a WII from Japan, ^.^

    The only problem with it is I can;t read Japanese.
    Is there a way to convert the menus to English?

    Thanks in Advance for any advise.

    well, the set came pre-modchiped. brand new.
    And with 13 games for the same price as a normal system.

    ahem... can you read the games?

    must be a flimsy mod-chip. Get the chip seperate so you can make sure it'll work.

    Lost In Translation

    New user here too with a Japanese modded Wii...i share your pain with the system menu all in Katakana. I had no choice though because the jap version is the only Wii available here in China. So after intense research throughout the net, the answer is a resounding, "No you can't change the language on a japanese Wii." And when you connect online, its also all only in japanese, the Wii news channel, weather etc. Can't surf the net either unless you know your japanese characters.

    Firstly welcome to the forums.

    *still chuckling*

    Your suprised response is nothing short of amusing.

    A Wii bought in Japan, that's in...... Japanese!?!?!

    Dec3it & Dirob, one word for you. Unlucky.

    I live in Shanghai, CHINA and the units available here are Japanese versions only. (It came pre-modded though with 20 free games and an extra wiimote/nunchuck and step-down transformer thankfully! )

    Dec3it & Dirob, one word for you. Unlucky.
    Incredibly unlucky. If Toys-R-Us were allowed to open shop in China, the US version would've been available to us. I had no choice really...

    Where's the line?
