Hello, Im new to all this, but I need help.

My Father bought me a Japan version Wii for christmas - he didnt realise it was region locked and he was assured it would work in england - where we live. The Console itself plugged in fine in England with no need for an AC adaptor. The console itself is all in Japanse (which I expected and am fine with) but when i put in an english game it came up with a question mark and a lot of writing which frustratingly i had no idea what it meant.

I want to know if there is anyway of making the Wii accept and run English games or where I will have to only buy japanese games. - if this is the case is it possible to buy games with a japanese setting but in English language?

Thank you and i hope someone can help...
