The Super Nintendo Entertainment System, or SNES for short, was Nintendo’s second home console and was one of its most popular. It released back in 1990 in Japan (it was known there as the Super Famicom) and then in North America the following year.
Hundreds of games both first-party and third-party were released for the system until it was discontinued about a decade later. The legacy of many of these games lives on even today.
Nintendo revived the console in 2017 by creating the SNES Classic Edition to give people a modern and physical way to play some of these older games. Many SNES games are also available to play on Nintendo Switch Online.
Even though the Super Nintendo Entertainment System had such a vast library of games, some titles were much more popular than others. Nearly anyone can recognize the most popular games such as Super Mario World and a Link to the Past.
