    If you have checked the European eShop ur gonna see a notification that says that the 18+ games restriction is removed from the eShop for WiiU and 3DS.
    Before they removed it all of the 18+ games could be bought and browsed from 11PM till 3AM.

    A happy resolution to a problem which should have never existed in the first place.

    It was a dumb restriction anyway. You can still play the games any time you want, so it's not like this "protects" kids from anything.
    The eShop should just use parental controls on a per-account basis.
