Super Nintendo HELP required!!

Post by Son_of_Shinobi » Mon Jul 16, 2012 1:09 pm

Hi all.

Am new to the forum, but I ill be staying thats for sure. Been reading the mag for about 7 years and now I finally have a lap-top, I can hopefully become a member of the online retro community. Is there a place on here where newbies go to start out??

Anyways, I need some help regarding Super Nintendo collecting.

I am going to be working in Germany for a few months, and I wondered if I bought games over there, would they work on my PAL machine? I am somewhat concerned that all the text will be in German and the only German language I know is Good Morning, Good Day and Thanks!!!

From what I have managed to find out so far is that nearly all RPGS are localised and that there are a few other non-RPG games that have German regional versions - I believe that Super Mario World 2 : Yoshi's Island is one of them.

Is there a list anywhere I can get hold of that will say which games to avoid (the ones all in German text/language) as there are several games I am interested in including Castlevania - Vampires Kiss and The Firemen.

Hope someone can help

Dank!

Unlike the NES, PAL SNES games will work fine on any PAL SNES to my knowledge. But yeah, as you say, many of the games are going to be localised and/or have German packaging to boot.

Thanks for the replies guys. So is there nowhere that states which games have been translated?

Or is there a list of SNES games which gives you the choice of language before you start game? Is English language an option on Castlevania Vampires Kiss?

Thanks all
