Is content from the Japanese store now region locked outside Japan?

I've had a Japanese account for a while that I've used to download demos and themes that aren't on the North America store. I recently downloaded the Metal Gear Rising demo from the Japanese store. When I tried to played it, it gave me the message "This content cannot be played in your region", or something like that. It did that while logged in with my normal account and Japanese account.

Is this the case with everything on the store now, or just specific things?
