Newsbrief: It came to light last week that 18+ content in the European Nintendo Wii U eShop is being restricted during the daytime. Nintendo has now confirmed that the issue is where Nintendo of Europe is based.

In a statement to Eurogamer, the company noted that it works out of Germany, and therefore must comply "with German youth protection regulation which therefore applies to all our European markets."

As a result of the compliance, 18+ rated games on the eShop, such as Ubisoft's ZombiU, are not accessible most of the time in Europe, and can only be viewed and purchased between the hours of 11pm and 3am.
