The Super Nintendo Entertainment System, commonly abbreviated SNES or simply Super Nintendo (known in Japan as Super Famicom) is a gaming system released by Nintendo in 1990 in Japan and was released in North America in 1991. It is the successor to the Nintendo Entertainment System, and is claimed as a revolutionary system due to its leap of higher quality games. The Super NES exhibited new ways of graphical design, innovation, and gameplay.

Games[edit]

This system was home to the Donkey Kong Country original trilogy. These games helped showcase the SNES's graphical capabilities thanks to Rare's use of pre-rendered graphics and "Mode-7" technology.
