MCL commented on Annoyed About Age Restrictions On The Euro Wii...:

To anyone comparing this to fascism: the one thing that will always be censored in Germany outside of art/documentaries is fascist symbolism or propaganda. That comparison is stupid.
Also: I must have missed the memo about Germany having jurisdiction over other countries, Nintendo could've found an alternative if they so desired.

The funny thing about this is that this currently only affects ZombiU in Germany, AssCreed 3 is rated 16+ and can be bought anytime.

Origin also had this restriction some time ago, but they introduced legally valid age verification. Hopefully Nintendo will do this too at some point in the future.

It still doesn't explain why services like PSN or XBL don't have these restrictions, they also have to comply with German law if they're selling content there. And they do that, because "forbidden" games aren't available for purchase, but you can buy available 18+ games anytime.
