    Hi there!

    The japanese version of the Wii U (WUP-101(01)) is restricted to japanese games and the japanese language. Since it should be the same hardware as every other Wii U console, is it possible to bypass those restrictions? Maybe via unlocking or installing a new firmware?

    Thank you!

    Just run a cfw (like mocha) and you are in region free.

    Install Haxchi [requires DS VC title]
    or launch Mocha CFW.

    It's fairly hard to mess up though as long as you're careful.
    Actually, I suggested it to one person because they couldn't get out of region discs working with CFW, but that was a while ago and that issue may have been fixed now.
