Born IN 1990
Originally release as the Super Famicom, the Super Nintendo Entertainment System - or SNES (as it was more commonly known) was launched to face-off against SEGA's Genesis / Mega Drive in the 16-bit console wars. Using a ROM cartridge set-up, the SNES came into the 16-BIT era a little later than it's rivals, but with its range of games and stunning sound and graphics of the time, it made up for it quickly. The success of the console led it to being the biggest selling of it's generation. Games such as Street Fighter 2, Mario Kart and Super Mario World became instant hits and loved by gamers around the World.
