NTSC SNES wanting to play PAL region games.

Post by flummerfelt »

Hey everyone, i'm a long time SNES owner, and i've always considered it my favorite system. Recently, i've heard of a game called Romancing Saga 3, which never made it over here to the states... It was released in NTSC-J format for japan, and in the PAL format for Europe. Since i cant read Japanese, and i have an NTSC SNES, i was wondering if there is any converter for playing PAL games on my system. I've looked everywhere, and i can only seem to find converters for playing ntsc on pal consoles, not the other way around. Thanks in advance, any help is greatly appreciated. :)

I imagine there are all kinds of mods for this kind of thing.

One could argue that many of the Saga games were released outside of Japan, though not the SNES ones.

I keep reading "SaGa" in the old Genesis Sega logo voice. You know the one. It was at the beginning of SoNic.
