Revisit The 16-Bit Era
Released in Japan and South Korea in 1990, the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (otherwise known as SNES) followed in the footsteps of Nintendo’s first home console, the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES). This advanced piece of technology allowed the company to stay ahead of its competitors, providing unrivalled graphics and sound at the time of its debut. Expectedly, the SNES became immensely popular among fans, and it was the best-selling console of the 16-bit era, overcoming the Sega Genesis, which launched before it.
Over the course of the console’s original lifespan, 1757 video games were released. These comprised some of the greatest games of all time: Super Mario World (1990), The Legend Of Zelda: A Link To The Past (1991), Star Fox (1993), Secret Of Mana (1993), Donkey Kong Country (1994), EarthBound (1994), Super Metroid (1994), and Yoshi’s Island (1995).
To this day, the console remains a favorite of the gaming community, having attracted the attention of collectors as well as those looking for a nostalgic experience. Nintendo have accommodated this passionate group of gamers, offering emulated versions of past releases on the Virtual Console, the Super NES Classic Edition, and Nintendo Switch Online.
