Ok I have a Retron 3 and I'm loving it. I tried to find some info on this but didn't find any: will this play PAL and or Japanese Super Famicon games?
I want to get Dracula X but the American version is much too expensive and the Japanese version is a lot cheaper.
PS I must have Ver 2 of the Retron 3 because it plays the NES game Castlevania 3 just fine.
Yes, all Japanese Super Famicom games will work assuming they are not SA-1 games. As for PAL SNES games, I'm not sure. I assume the results would be the same as if you tried to run PAL games on a real SNES. I can't imagine that working out too good on an NTSC system.
You say you can play Castlevania 3? Please confirm. Castlevania will boot up but completely freeze after the titlescreen. MMC5 doesn't play nice with NOACs.
