    Japanese Wii console HELP!!!

    I have for my sins got hold of a japanese wii and have a couple of questions to ask...
    Can I play US ntsc games on it?

    Also one major problem I have is the menu is in Japanese and although I can just about work out what button does what it's doing my head in.

    Does anyone know if there is a way of changing it to english either by Hack or by some other form.


    Please help a stupid geeza resole his problems....

    Cheers,
    Leeszer

    Assuming you live in North America, why would you buy a Japanese Wii?

    Just to explain...

    The only reason I got nthe JAP console is that in the UK there is just about no stock at all and if you do manage to find one you have to pay around 100 extra for them.
    I got the JAP one quite cheap and now I'm starting to realise why...

    Why the hell do nintendo have to be such a pain in the arse region locking there consoles.

    Sorry didnt me to upset everyone this is just getting me down.

    Thanks

    Hi Leeszer,
    I'm in the same case as you, I don't speak Japanese but have a Japanese Wii (in my case that's because here in Korea, it's the only one available...).

    First advice :
    Download the manual in english from the address below, it will help you set-up your Wii (bottom right of the page). Looking at the page/menu configuration in english helps a great deal as the windows and channels are at the same place in jap and us versions :
    http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/
    Also check this thread and feel free to post in it !

    Oh, and the games I got are all japanese games in Japanese (see my sig) but they're playable easily even if you don't speak Japanese...
    And yes, I agree with ungoy, playasia's the best place to buy jap games.

    Also, wait a bit for asian releases (HK, TW,...), the games are likely to be in english but compatible with your Wii. As far as I know, the chips will allow you to play games from other regions but I don't think they will change the Wii's interface langague.
    Gdluck with your Japanese Wii, and make sure you get all the japan exclusive games !! :P
    Spoiler Alert!
