Submission + - Quebec forces video game makers into French (www.cbc.ca)

Noishe writes: Video game characters such as Lara Croft and the Mario Bros. will have to hone their accents now that a joint industry-government initiative aims to boost the number of games available in French.

"Players are used to playing in English," said Jean-François Patenaude, a manager with a small video-game retail chain in Montreal. "I don't think it will change much for them." Patenaude even suggested that the deal could increase operating costs for smaller retailers, who will be forced to buy copies of games in both English and French.
