Or you collapsed the Romhacking section.
I don't know about the game's code, but I think someone formerly with Argonaut (was it Jez San himself?) said that Nintendo always owned the rights to the FX chip, responding to rumors legal issues with Argonaut's IP has been what kept SuperFX games off Virtual Consoles.
So I'm importing a euro model and will flash over a North American firmware once it's out. The only other option is to buy both and swap the guts, which won't be difficult. But I will NOT suffer that hideously ugly lavender and purple monstrosity a second generation, especially as both of my SNES systems are in either in a SuperFam chassis or a UK SNES chassis.
Also, the SFC Mini has been announced:
Castlevania IV changed to Legend of the Mystical Ninja (sounds like Japan likes Goemon more than Castlevania)
Panel de Pon instead of Kirby's Dream Course (they really can't just hack the Tetris Attack title-screen after all these years)? Not that I don't think Kirby's Dream Course is a good game, and it's worth including for variety on the unit.
Fire Emblem 3 instead of EarthBound. I knew a FE game would replace something, but I expected it to replace...
Super Soccer instead of Super Punch-Out. I thought Super Punch-Out would be replaced on the Japanese console, since I hear Japan has almost no interest in Punch-Out, but Super Soccer doesn't seem like more than a generic sports game (even if it got like five installments in Japan).
It still says "Final Fantasy II" and "Final Fantasy III" on the carts. The carts don't care if it's the year 2017 or 3017.
It also doesn't translate the game's subtitle "Super Dimension Fortress", which sort of defeats the purpose since that's the part whose meaning is harder to grasp (a lot more people can sound out マクロス than parse 超時空要塞).
marioxb I liked your initiative, it's a shame that you did not share the patch, if you wish I did a Spanish version that might prove useful.

I always thought about doing something like this but I wasn't sure if these games broke canon or not with their content.
