Are SNES games Region Free?

with No Comments

SNES games are not region free. PAL games will only work on PAL region SNES and NTSC games will only work on NTSC region SNES.

One can use a region converter to play PAL games on NTSC SNES or NTSC games on PAL SNES.

See the image below to spot the differences in cartridges.

Top = PAL

Bottom = NTSC
