    So I've been thinking about buying a Japanese Wii U since its a readily available option, but I've already created my NNID on my 3DS. My region for my NNID is the US, so if I sign in with that NNID on a Japanese Wii U will my region be Japan or the US? Will I be using the Japan eShop or the American eShop?

    I'm not even sure you can log into US NNID with JP Wii U, since Wii U is region locked.
