Super Nintendo

The Super Nintendo or SNES as it is widely known, was Nintendo Corporation's 16 bit equivalent to the Sega Megadrive, and was the successor to the Nintendo Entertainment System. Released in Japan on November 21, 1990 and called the Super Famicom (short for Super Family Computer) it quickly established itself as Sega's main rival.

In Autumn 1991, the Super Nintendo hit the American shops. With a different design to the Super Famicom (although the internal architecture was identical), and a different cartridge shape to combat importing of US games overseas, the American model matched the success of the Super Famicom in Japan.

Finally, after almost two years of waiting, the Europeans got to see what all the fuss was about and they weren't disappointed! Sporting the same case as the Super Famicom, but running at a slower clock speed of 50Hz because many TV sets did not have the capability to run at 60Hz, the initial release of the Super Nintendo came bundled with two controllers and Super Mario World. Early game releases included the excellent F-Zero, and an arcade conversion of Super R-Type.
