@quadfather Do you have an NTSC SNES or a cart adapter of any kind? A lot of SNES games are considerably cheaper if you get the SFC version and Turtles in particular shouldn't be too affected by the language (in fact it might even be in English - a lot of non-story-focused games were like that).|
The Mega Man X's do have Japanese text - and there is a semblance of a storyline that you'd miss out on - but you could literally get all of the SFC releases for the price of a single English Mega Man X cart. This is the only reason I have more than one Mega Man X game and speaking from experience it won't affect your ability to finish it.
A bonus to all of this if you're using an actual NTSC console is that the games will also run full screen and full speed.
21 consoles, 5 handhelds, 2 PCs, 1 Mac and about 700 games from the past 30 years. Every major manufacturer and developer represented. Still a fanboy for disagreeing with you.
