    So I managed to change the language of Mario Kart 8 and Yoshi's Woolly World

    NOTE: no matter what Region your WUD is, some games (Like I mentioned above) contains all the REGION files needed to boot the game whatever region your Wii U is,

    Mario Kart 8 how to change language:
    1. go to content/ui/ee and copy all .mbst files there (do not copy .szs file this causes Encryption DSI occurred!!)
    2. go to content/ui/jp and paste the .mbst files(from the ee folder) here
    3. You're good to go. the game will boot normally

    Yoshi's Wooly World how to change language:
    1. go to content/message/US_English then copy the 2 .mbst files
    2, go to content/message/JP_Japanese then replace the 2 .mbst files with the ones you copied
    3. go to content/font/US copy all files then paste to content/font/JP replace all files
    4. go to content/font/USEU copy the font01.bffnt then paste to content/font/JP replace the font01.bffnt with the one you copied from USEU folder
    5. You're good to go. the game will boot with the Japanese logo but the text will all be ENG

    SO I noticed that in Super Mario 3d World that it has the same format the .mbst and .szs files in the region folder maybe that's why renaming the UsEn and US_en still don't make the game boot on JPN consoles because it needs the JAP version of the .szs files in order to boot

    SO PLEASE SOMEONE SEND ME THE JPN version of LuigiBros and LocalizedData folder so that I can play SMB3dW

    You're welcome
    so I got my SMB3DW working by renaming UsEn folder to JpJa not JpJp
    and USA_en folder to JAP_ja not JPN_jp or JAP_jp
