The Super Nintendo Entertaiment System, the third home video game console by Nintendo, was known as the Super Famicom in Japan. It was first released in Japan in 1990, in North America in 1991, and in Europe in 1992.

Unreleased Super NES CD-ROM System

In 1991, at the Consumer Electronics Show, Sony announced the Super NES CD-ROM System. It was meant to be released in two formats. The first was a CD-ROM add-on for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. The second was a unit that combined the SNES and CD-ROM in one unit that Sony dubbed the PlayStation. The unit was going to be compatible with regular SNES format games as well as a Sony-developed Super Disc format. Because of the latter, Sony would have a large deal of control over the system. As a result, Nintendo tried to negotiate a better deal with Philips. This ultimately led to both deals falling through, and the add-on was never released.

Philips would go on to release its own console, the CD-i in 1991. Sony would, likewise, release the PlayStation as a stand-alone console in 1994.

Legacy of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System

The legacy of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System remains, even after its heyday. Independent, unlicensed games continue to be produced for the system to this day.

Nintendo has capitalized on the system's continuing popularity with a dedicated console that contained modern hardware with an emulator to run the included games. The Super Nintendo Entertainment System Classic Edition, released as the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System in Europe and Oceania, and as the Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Famicom in Japan, was released in the United States on September 29, 2017, right in the middle of the 1990s nostalgia boom. It featured twenty-one built-in games, HDMI display output for high definition televisions, and two replica controllers which could also connect to the Wii remote for use on the Wii or the Wii U.
