Some consoles sold more units. Later consoles brought superior graphics. But no console captured the hearts and minds of generations of gamers like the Super Nintendo Entertainment System!
When it launched in the early 90s the SNES (Super Famicom in Japan) fought off heated competition from the likes of the SEGA Mega Drive to became the best selling console of the 16-bit era. Bright, crisp graphics created the perfect platform for some of the most imaginative games of all time!
Even as 32-bit consoles appeared on the scene, the popularity of the SNES refused to wane. Its legacy continues even to this day - with the SNES Mini capturing the hearts of gamers twenty eight years later in 2018. Meanwhile, the iconic SNES controller is an image that has become synonymous with retro gaming around the world.
