Sega Saturn Games - Regional Differences Between NTSC + PAL

Post by aloram » February 18th, 2016, 2:01 pm

Hi. Can someone please point me to a list of the differences between games that were released in both NTSC and PAL? I'm not talking about the box art, or that some games are PAL-optimized -- I mean differences in game content, such as music, graphics, levels, etc. Or, if there were no game content differences, please let me know. Thanks for your help.

In general (meaning for any release ie PSX, NES, etc)... the differences would have been mostly localization, ie:
obviously screen resolutions.
language(s).. ie text/voices... ie PAL/Europe generally includes german, french.. etc.
maybe patches/fixes over the first region release.
Some games (I think Crash Bandicoot PSX) have difficult changed.. ie EU/UK release is harder then the US release.

I don't know of such a list tho.. maybe looking up individually.
