    I'm hearing about this new Iosu exploit or something that is about to get released here pretty soon. I got a Wii-U for the holidays and I was really wanting to try and get a Japanese console so I can play SMT x FE! Unfortunately I know Nintendo is really big with region locks and the such. Do you think that with this release I would be able to disable the Region lock and play Japanese games similar to Ironhax on 3DS?

    Thanks for the help guys :vul2:

    Taking over the IOSU can mean ANYTHING. We will be able to do anything on the console. Remember the custom Wii Menus on the Wii? We'll get that level of customization, so yeah. Region Free is definitely coming.
