Usage[change source]

This template takes a country code or abbreviation as input and outputs a wikilink to the country with the code or abbreviation as the link's text. It supports the typical video game-related abbreviations, NA, JP, EU, EUR, AU, AUS, PAL and INT, as well as all ISO 3166-1 alpha-3 codes and a smaller number of selected ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 codes.

The template automatically converts the input to upper case.

Release dates should be provided from primarily English-speaking regions, including North America, Europe, and Australia/New Zealand. If the video game is first released in a non-English country, commonly in Japan, then that should also be stated ... Releases in non-English countries should not be included in the infobox (unless it is first released in a non-English country), but if determined to be necessary to include, can be discussed further in the article's body.
