Language on nintendo wii

I got a nintendo wii for Christmas but cannot get it to work. When I highlight English in the language section and press A nothing happens. I have also tried to solve this using the reset button but nothing happens. Can you help me to find a solution to this problem.
Thank you

Go to Wii Options
Then go to Wii Settings
Click the right arrow at the right of the screen twice

I am sorry but the Japanese Wii has no option for English language menus. All Wii menus will be in Japanese.

Hi there I had this problem as well and eventually realised you have to have the wii nunchuck attached before it will let you select, I don't think it tells you to but you do need it.

Japanese version to english

No, the Wii is region locked. Unless you get a mod chip to play out of region games. But I don't think there is a way to change the menu language.

Try aiming the remote at the screen ( Providing you have your sensor set up) till you see the little hand pop up and use that to click on the English tab with the A button.

Nintendo wii consule (european german version)


The Wii Sports manual can be downloaded here

The manual for the Wii console itself can be obtained here

As for changing the language in Wii Sports, I am not sure, but it usually gives you the option when the game first starts up, otherwise it might use the system language.
