    ok , in anticipation for the upcoming release of MH3 , i was wondering if purchases from Japanese Shop channel on a non Japanese Wii still work (4.0+)
    I've searched and read about the different methods but they are confusing , no clear answer

    I have a Pal Wii , latest BootMii/Preloader , System Menu 4.0E
    is it possible for me to convert it to Japanese and maintain full functionality ?
    because technically we could buy the MH3 points from the japanese Store , unless Capcom decides to do a MHF-PC and region lock IP's *i seriously hope not*

    like i said , if someone could point me in the right direction , i plan on upgrading to 4.1 , should i upgrade to 4.1J directly ? or just use region changing ?
    what are the downsides ...etc.

    any help/info is welcome (i wanna make the best out of my soon-to-have e-Capcom Edition hehe)[​IMG]

    Thanks in advance!

    I remember have read somewhere that if you change your WiiShop from region, you cannot changed it back (using homebrew tools), but this can be only a rumour...!! [​IMG]

    hmm you know come to think of it i feel a little idiotic now , i don't think the MH3 points will be on the shop will they ?
    the game will probably just use your Wii points in the store account i presume ala in-game shop

    You can change back to the US/EU firmware if you like as it will won't have any affect on the Shop Account. [​IMG]
