    Hey guys! I´m From brazil and purchased a Europe Wiiu!!!

    Here in Brazil, The Voltages are 110~60hz, and the AC Adapter from Wiiu Shows 220~50Hz.

    but the most impressive is that I Play normal! there´s no issues!!!

    Any Problems if I Continue that way???

    thanks in advance.

    I suppose you have a power converter hooked up, otherwise you couldn't even plug the adapter in since it has a different input method?

    Don't know about the ones form Europe, but the USA ones seems to not be bivolt.. (as seen here and here) ..but the Japanese ones are bivolt ..I think.

    See the info in your Power Supply, and compare with the pictures linked ...if on INPUT there is something like "100-240v 50/60hz", then yeah, it's bivolt and you're fine.
    But if the INPUT is the same that you find on the pics I linked, then you better be careful

    What it shows on the power brick is false. I am on Germany with a USA wiiu and it worked fine. No transformer being used. I can post images of how I am plugging a USA plug in to a euro outlet.
