The Nintendo Entertainment System, the second home video game console by Nintendo, was known as the Family Computer, or Famicom, in Japan. It was first released in Japan in 1983, in North America in 1985, and in Europe in 1986.

Nintendo creates a cartridge-based home console

The Japanese Family Computer

Nintendo had already sold several video game systems with games built into them in Japan as part of their Color TV-Game line and designed the light guns, based on their Beam Gun line and their Simulation System, which were used in the various shooting games for the Magnavox Odyssey console. Nintendo was also a licensee of the Odyssey and sold the system in Japan.

However, by the early 1980s, consoles that read programmable data on cartridge media were replacing dedicated video game consoles that could only play the games programmed into them. Nintendo Research & Development 2, the development team that had previously designed the Color TV-Game line, went to work designing a system that could read media from a cartridge.

The result was the Family Computer, or Famicom, which came with two built-in controllers, and a microphone embedded in the second controller. It was a hit as soon as it released on July 15, 1983 in Japan. The early success of the console was helped in no small part by Famicom ports of Nintendo's popular arcade games, which were also handled by Nintendo R&D2.

Nintendo enters the foreign home console market

North American NES Action Set

By 1985, Nintendo had success in the United States with their arcade games such as Donkey Kong and Mario Bros., and their Game & Watch series. However, they had yet to break into the North American home console market. This was coupled with the fact that the video game crash of 1983 caused retailers to be skeptical of video game systems in North America. After the crash, most economists warned that video games were simply a passing fad. At first Nintendo sought an established parter to get their foot in the door, and approached Atari with an offer to market their Family Computer in the United States. However, Atari declined. Instead, Nintendo renamed the system from the Family Computer to the Nintendo Entertainment System, in order to distance themselves from the consoles that contributed to the crash, and took the risky approach of releasing the system in North America on their own.

They redesigned the system in muted black and grey tones, and made a system that loaded cartridges from the front of the system instead of on top. This was done in an effort to resemble the video cassette recorders of the time, so it would blend into the average American entertainment center. It was released in North America on October 18, 1985, and it became a smash hit. By the early 1990s, it had entered the public consciousness to a level where the name Nintendo became synonymous with video game consoles themselves.

The home video game market rebounds in North America

The Nintendo Entertainment System was the major factor that brought the United States video game market back after the North American video game crash of 1983, helped in no small part by Nintendo's approval policy, and their official seal of quality which was printed on each officially licensed cartridge. This strict policy not only limited the amount of games a company could release per year, but since Nintendo of America wanted to project a family image, some violent or sexually suggestive games were censored from their original releases. For the most part though, this system worked in Nintendo's favor, as it prevented the influx of cheaply made games that helped lead to the crash.

Some companies created new branches to get around the game limit. There were also some unlicensed games released on the system that got around Nintendo's protection system, including Atari's games through their Tengen label. Bootleg games and clones of the console were also produced, however these were more prevalent in Asia and Eastern Europe than in North America. However, the censorship and unlicensed releases did little to hurt Nintendo's profits. The NES remained the best selling video game console worldwide for the rest of the decade.

Nintendo Entertainment System outside of North America

The worldwide markets received the same front-loading model as the United States. It was released in Europe on September 1, 1986 and in Oceania in 1987. In Korea, it was licensed by Hyundai and released as the Comboy Nintendo Entertainment System in October 1989.

Japan received the Family Computer Disk System, an add-on that added a floppy disk to the Famicom, as well as improved sound hardware with simple wavetable support. It was released on February 21, 1986, and although it was a success, it was never released outside of Japan. Some of the games that were originally Famicom Disk games were released as cartridge games, sometimes with altered audio from the original due to the lack of wavetable support in the original console.

Additional models of the Nintendo Entertainment System

Sharp, one of the companies who had previously released consoles in Nintendo's Color TV Game line, developed the Twin Famicom. This was a Famicom and Famicom Disk System combined in one unit. A switch on the unit enabled switching between cartridge and disk modes. It was released on July 1, 1986 and was only available in Japan.

The NES-101 model was released on October 15, 1993. This design update addressed the major drawback of the original front loading cartridge system. The cartridge contacts in the system often became dusty, and they became loose over time. Because of this, blowing on cartridges to get them to work became a common theme among gamers in the West. Nintendo remedied this with the NES-101 model system, which loaded games from the top. It also featured an ergonomic "dog-bone" shaped controller, which was very similar to their then-current console, the Super Nintendo Entertainment System.

Legacy of the Nintendo Entertainment System

The legacy of the 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 emulators to run the games. In 2001, they included NES games in Animal Forest for the Nintendo 64 and in Animal Crossing for the GameCube. In 2003, they released The Legend of Zelda: Collector's Edition for the GameCube with an emulator to play the NES versions of The Legend of Zelda and Zelda II: The Adventure of Link. In 2004, they released emulated versions of several NES titles in the Classic NES Series for Game Boy Advance.

Nintendo introduced the Virtual Console digital download service on the Wii in 2006, which included several emulated NES games. The Virtual Console service was continued on the Wii U in 2011 and on the Nintendo 3DS in 2013.

They also released dedicated consoles that contained modern hardware with an emulator to run the included games. The NES Classic Edition, released as the Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System in Europe and Oceania, and as the Nintendo Classic Mini: Family Computer in Japan, was released in 2016, right in the middle of the 1980s nostalgia boom. It featured thirty built-in games, HDMI display output for high definition televisions, and a new replica controller which could also connect to the Wii remote for use on the Wii or the Wii U, the latter of which was Nintendo's current home console at the time. In 2018, Nintendo released a special edition of the miniature Famicom in Japan to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Weekly Shonen Jump comic, titled the Nintendo Classic Mini: Family Computer - Weekly Shonen Jump 50th Anniversary Version. This version contained 20 games that tied into Weekly Shonen Jump and the mini-console was colored gold.

In 2018, Nintendo released the Nintendo Entertainment System – Nintendo Switch Online service, which contained several NES games which could be played at no additional charge for members of the Nintendo Switch Online service for Nintendo Switch.
