    Bon travail, Nintendo! 🙂

    Good decision.
    It was really dumb of Nintendo to offer a French console in France but refuse to sell it in Quebec.

      Actually, the SNES offered to France will be in english too.

      If there is no French version anywhere in the world, then Nintendo doesn’t have to offer it in French in Quebec as per Quebec law.

      So either you are wrong, or Nintendo is stupid.

      The console menu can be set to french (as in the the NES Classic). I heard there was two games that had french version back in the ’90 (A link to the past and another one) but there was no option to play those in the console. Not an expert of the 2009 law but someone probably realized it was not applicable to reissues of 20 year old games.

      it’s not the same product as the old SNES, even if the games are similar

    Thank god we no longer have to hear about this anymore. I’ve never heard so much whining….

    In fact, the law says if the game exist in french somewhere it must be available in Quebec, not translate again from french to french ”Quebecois” (BTW this language doesn’t exist).

    The law is outdated but not crazy as mentionned in the article !

      In Zelda breath of the wild, the language pack lets you choose Quebecois french… In addition to France’s French.

      Not because of Quebec law.

  • Jason

    Not that anyone there will be able to actually get one…

    Or I can just buy from Ontario.

    The law mentions current (2009) and future consoles. Technically it’s a re-release of an older console. So how does that work?
