Perhaps you remember the SNES as a kid, or maybe you played it with your parents. No matter how old you are, if you have ever owned a Super Nintendo Entertainment System, this article is for you!
The SNES was one of the most memorable handheld gaming consoles that have a special place in many kids' hearts—especially kids in the 80s and 90s. And real advantage? It’s timelessness!
The SNES sold over 49 million units worldwide (North America: 23.35 million, Japan: 17.17 million, other countries: 8.58 million) when it was first released on November 21st, 1990. It's true that this was also a time when many consoles were hitting the market—the Sega Genesis, Atari Jaguar, and even 3DO—but none of them really had much success compared to Super SNES’s 16-bit powerhouse. In fact, it was so popular that it surpassed its predecessor (the NES) by almost double!
WHY SNES CONSOLE WAS A TRUE HIT?
SNES is proven to have notable features that set it apart from other consoles in its time and became staples in modern gaming consoles:
3. The SNES was one of the first consoles to include a memory card slot, which allowed players to save their progress by transferring game data to a memory card. This feature is still used today with most modern game systems.
4. The Super Nintendo's controller had animproved button layout that made it easy for players to press two buttons at once without accidentally pressing another one that may be close by or difficult to reach.
5. SNES features two controller ports instead of just one on the front of the console, allowing more than one player at a time. Perfect for multiplayer action games and came in handy for fighting games like Street Fighter II or Mortal Kombat - which are still being played today!
