    I have the same problem as Nett2123. My Wii Ver. 3.1J is in Japaneese or Chineese. Could someone provide steps (screen by screen) on what to click to get to the "language" setup button? It would be greatly appreciated.

OMG!!!! well yeah... bad news for you who bought Japanese and Chinese consoles.
It's most possible that there isn't english language in there.
Even if there is, all your games won't be in English and you'd have to buy games only from Japan only due to the region lock.

And with that, I advice you people not to buy Wiis from other regions no matter how cheeper they are. It will spell trouble later when trying to play the console or find games.

My wii is an import and I dont know where to purchase games for it


Actually, I believe that if you go to the same language of video game sites as your Wii is (and translate with Google Toolbar) you may be able to purchase games for your Wii that would work. Or, if you want to play specific region-protected games (e.g. English game on Japanese Wii), you can enable homebrew, which is running unauthorized applications on the Wii. One of these apps is one that can disable region-protection on your Wii. But be aware, because if you don't know what you're doing with homebrew, you could screw up your Wii.

Hi,

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

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.

Is japanese wii compatible with english wii fit?


No it does not. You can't play European games either for that matter, only Japanese games.
However there is a way around it, though it's a bit complicated and you'll need Zelda Twilight Princess (japanese version in your case) and an SD card.

Information can be found here: http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Twilight_Hack#Download (used to install the Wii Homebrew Channel)
and used in combination with this:
http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Homebrew_Channel/Help (Wii hombrew channel install files)
and finally this:
http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Homebrew_apps/GeckoOS (homebrew application allowing you to play games from other regions)

If you need any help I'll walk you through it. This isn't endorsed by Nintendo whatsoever. No warranty on this at all. I have done it myself and there have been no adverse effects.

Brought wii in singapore and wont help as it is in different langue??


Its in Japanese right? Modding it to English is an illegal practice, not to mention its not advisable as it will restrict the number of games you can play. My suggestion is that you sell your current Wii and purchase another US version.

Nintendo wii consule (european german version)


Hi,

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.

Thanks.
