PAL to PAL region lockout
« on: February 26, 2015, 09:01:31 AM »
Hey guys,

Sorty if this should be in the console section but I thought it related to the game more. I live in the UK but have family in Germany, a family member is wanting to send me a German Secret of Mana for the SNES. Would this play on my UK SNES or would I need an adaptor to play it?

Again sorry if this is placed wrong and thank you for any advice and help on this.

With no great certainty - yes?

Might be some regional localization e.g. its in german but apart from power I think most european consoles are broadly compatible between countries.

as far as i know you should be fine.

it should really say EUR on the cart though if its possible to be played on your console, if it says GER or something like that, give a whirl. worst case scenario is that it doesn't work!

Thanks guys will check it out, I know with the NES you need to disable the region lock chip to play PAL B games on your UK NES, juat didn't know if the SNES was the same.
