The Super Nintendo Entertainment System SNES , [b] commonly shortened to Super NES or Super Nintendo , [c] is a bit home video game console developed by Nintendo that was released in in Japan and South Korea ,  in North America , in Europe and Oceania , and in South America.
In Japan, it is called the Super Famicom SFC. Although each version is essentially the same, several forms of regional lockout prevent cartridges for one version from being used in other versions. The Super NES is Nintendo's second programmable home console, following the Nintendo Entertainment System NES. The console introduced advanced graphics and sound capabilities compared with other systems at the time. It was designed to accommodate the ongoing development of a variety of enhancement chips integrated into game cartridges to be competitive into the next generation.
The Super NES received largely positive reviews and was a global success, becoming the best-selling console of the bit era after launching relatively late and facing intense competition from Sega 's Genesis console in North America and Europe. Overlapping the NES's It continues to be popular among collectors and retro gamers , with new homebrew games and Nintendo's emulated rereleases, such as on the Virtual Console , the Super NES Classic Edition , Nintendo Switch Online ; as well as several non-console emulators which operate on a desktop computer, such as Snes9x.
To compete with the popular Family Computer in Japan, NEC Home Electronics launched the PC Engine in , and Sega followed suit with the Mega Drive in The two platforms were later launched in North America in as the TurboGrafx and the Sega Genesis respectively. Both systems were built on bit architectures and offered improved graphics and sound over the 8-bit NES.
However, it took several years for Sega's system to become successful. On September 9, , then-Nintendo president Hiroshi Yamauchi revealed the development of the Super Famicom in the newspaper Kyoto Shimbun. On August 30, , in an interview with TOUCH Magazine , he announced the development of Super Mario Bros. Famicom Hissyoubon magazine speculated that Nintendo's early announcement was probably made to forestall Christmas shopping for the PC Engine, and relayed Enix 's clarification that it was waiting on sales figures to select either PC Engine or Super Famicom for its next Dragon Quest game.
The magazine and Enix both expressed a strong interest in networking as a standard platform feature. Designed by Masayuki Uemura , the designer of the original Famicom, the Super Famicom was released in Japan on Wednesday, November 21, , for ¥25, equivalent to ¥27, in It was an instant success.
Nintendo's initial shipment of , units sold out within hours, and the resulting social disturbance led the Japanese government to ask video game manufacturers to schedule future console releases on weekends. With the Super Famicom quickly outselling its rivals, Nintendo reasserted itself as the leader of the Japanese console market.
It began shipping in limited quantities on August 23, , [a]  with an official nationwide release date of September 9, Most of the PAL region versions of the console use the Japanese Super Famicom design, except for labeling and the length of the joypad leads.
The Playtronic Super NES in Brazil, although PAL-M , uses the North American design. The Super NES and Super Famicom launched with few games, but these games were well received. In Japan, only two games were initially available: Super Mario World and F-Zero. The rivalry between Nintendo and Sega was described as one of the most notable console wars in video game history,  in which Sega positioned the Genesis as the "cool" console, with games aimed at older audiences, and aggressive advertisements that occasionally attacked the competition.
Donkey Kong Country is said to have helped establish the Super NES's market prominence in the latter years of the bit generation,     and for a time, maintain against the PlayStation and Saturn. market by 1. During the NES era, Nintendo maintained exclusive control over games released for the system — the company had to approve every game, each third-party developer could only release up to five games per year but some third parties got around this by using different names, such as Konami's " Ultra Games " brand , those games could not be released on another console within two years, and Nintendo was the exclusive manufacturer and supplier of NES cartridges.
However, competition from Sega's console brought an end to this practice; in , Acclaim Entertainment began releasing games for both platforms, with most of Nintendo's other licensees following suit over the next several years; Capcom which licensed some games to Sega instead of producing them directly and Square were the most notable holdouts.
Nintendo continued to carefully review submitted games, scoring them on a point scale and allocating marketing resources accordingly. Each region performed separate evaluations. The surprise arcade hit Mortal Kombat , a gory fighting game with huge splashes of blood and graphically violent fatality moves , was heavily censored by Nintendo. Senators Herb Kohl and Joe Lieberman convened a Congressional hearing on December 9, , to investigate the marketing of violent video games to children.
While other companies were moving on to bit systems , Rare and Nintendo proved that the Super NES was still a strong contender in the market. In November , Rare released Donkey Kong Country , a platform game featuring 3D models and textures pre-rendered on Silicon Graphics workstations. With its detailed graphics, fluid animation, and high-quality music, Donkey Kong Country rivals the aesthetic quality of games that were being released on newer bit CD-based consoles. In the last 45 days of , 6.
This game conveyed that early bit systems had little to offer over the Super NES, and proved the market for the more advanced consoles of the near future.
for December are Super NES games. A similarly redesigned Super Famicom Jr. was released in Japan at around the same time. Nintendo ceased production of the Super NES in North America in ,  about two years after releasing Kirby's Dream Land 3 its final first-party game in the US on November 27, , and one year after releasing Frogger its final third-party game in the US in In Japan, Nintendo continued production of both the Family Computer and the Super Famicom until September 25, ,  and new games were produced until the year , ending with the release of Metal Slader Glory Director's Cut on November 29, Many popular Super NES games were ported to the Game Boy Advance , which has similar video capabilities.
In , Nintendo announced that Super NES games would be made available for download via the Wii 's Virtual Console service. announced that it would no longer repair Family Computer or Super Famicom systems due to an increasing shortage of the necessary parts. announced that it would bring Super NES games to the New Nintendo 3DS and New Nintendo 3DS XL and later the New Nintendo 2DS XL via its eShop download service.
The bit design of the Super NES  incorporates graphics and sound co-processors that perform tiling and simulated 3D effects, a palette of 32, colors, and 8-channel ADPCM audio. These base platform features, plus the ability to dramatically extend them all through substantial chip upgrades inside of each cartridge, represent a leap over the 8-bit NES generation and some significant advantages over bit competitors such as the Genesis.
The CPU is a Ricoh 5A22 , which is a derivative of the bit WDC 65C microprocessor. In NTSC regions, its nominal clock speed is 3. This CPU has an 8-bit data bus and two address buses. The bit "Bus A" is designated for general accesses, and the 8-bit "Bus B" can access support chip registers such as the video and audio co-processors. Early revisions of the 5A22 used in SHVC boards are prone to spontaneous failure which can produce a variety of symptoms including graphics glitches in Mode 7, a black screen on power-on, or improperly reading the controllers.
The console contains KB of general-purpose RAM, which is separate from the 64 KB VRAM dedicated to the video and audio subsystems. The Picture Processing Unit PPU consists of two closely tied IC packages. It contains 64 KB of SRAM for video data, bytes of object attribute memory OAM for sprite data, and × 15 bits of color generator RAM CGRAM for palette data.
This CGRAM provisions up to colors, chosen from the bit RGB color space , from a palette of 32, colors. The PPU is clocked by the same signal as the CPU and generates a pixel every two or four cycles. The S-SMP audio chip consists of an 8-bit CPU, a bit DSP , and 64 KB of SRAM. It was designed and produced by Sony  and is completely independent from the rest of the system. It is clocked at a nominal It is capable of stereo sound, composed from 8 voices generated using 8 bit audio samples and various effects such as echo.
Nintendo employed several types of regional lockout , including both physical and hardware incompatibilities.
Physically, the cartridges are shaped differently for different regions. North American cartridges have a rectangular bottom with inset grooves matching protruding tabs in the console, and other regions' cartridges are narrower with a smooth curve on the front and no grooves.
The physical incompatibility can be overcome with the use of various adapters, or through modification of the console. Internally, a regional lockout chip CIC within the console and in each cartridge prevents the PAL region games from being played on Japanese or North American consoles and vice versa. The Japanese and North American machines have the same region chip.
This can be overcome through the use of adapters, typically by inserting the imported cartridge in one slot and a cartridge with the correct region chip in a second slot. Alternatively, disconnecting one pin of the console's lockout chip will prevent it from locking the console; hardware in later games can detect this situation, so it became common to install a switch to reconnect the lockout chip as needed.
PAL consoles face another incompatibility when playing out-of-region cartridges: the NTSC video standard specifies video at 60 Hz but PAL operates at 50 Hz, resulting in an approximately PAL's higher resolution results in letterboxing of the output image. To mostly correct this issue, a switch can be added to place the Super NES PPU into a 60 Hz mode supported by most newer PAL televisions. Later games will detect this setting and refuse to run, requiring the switch to be thrown only after the check completes.
New-Style Super NES SNS — All models of the Super NES control deck are predominantly gray, of slightly different shades. The original North American version, designed by Nintendo of America industrial designer Lance Barr  who previously redesigned the Famicom to become the NES  , has a boxy design with purple sliding switches and a dark gray eject lever.
The loading bay surface is curved, both to invite interaction and to prevent food or drinks from being placed on the console and spilling as with the flat-surfaced NES. The North American New-Style Super NES model SNS and the Japanese Super Famicom Jr. model SHVC , all designed by Barr, are both smaller with a rounded contour; however, the SNS buttons are purple where the Super Famicom Jr. buttons are gray. The European and American versions of the Super NES controllers have much longer cables compared to the Japanese Super Famicom controllers.
All versions incorporate a top-loading slot for game cartridges, although the shape of the slot differs between regions to match the different shapes of the cartridges. The MULTI OUT connector later used on the Nintendo 64 and GameCube can output composite video , S-Video and RGB signals, as well as RF with an external RF modulator. The Nintendo Super System NSS is an arcade system for retail preview of 11 particular Super NES games in the United States, similar to the PlayChoice for NES games.
It consists of slightly modified Super NES hardware with a menu interface and inch monitor, that allows gameplay for a certain amount of time depending on game credits. The ABS plastic used in the casing of some older Super NES and Super Famicom consoles is particularly susceptible to oxidization with exposure to air. This, along with the particularly light color of the original plastic, causes affected consoles to quickly become yellow; if the sections of the casing came from different batches of plastic, a "two-tone" effect results.
Super NES games are distributed on ROM cartridges , officially referred to as Game Pak in most Western regions,  and as Cassette カセット , Kasetto in Japan and parts of Latin America. A fairly normal mapping could easily address up to 95 Mbit of ROM data 48 Mbit at FastROM speed with 8 Mbit of battery-backed RAM.
However, most available memory access controllers only support mappings of up to 32 Mbit. The largest games released Tales of Phantasia and Star Ocean contain 48 Mbit of ROM data,   and the smallest games contain only 2 Mbit. Cartridges may also contain battery-backed SRAM to save the game state, extra working RAM, custom coprocessors, or any other hardware that will not exceed the maximum current rating of the console.
Many Super NES games have been called some of the greatest video games of all time , such as Super Mario World , The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past , Donkey Kong Country , EarthBound , Super Metroid , and Yoshi's Island Many Super NES games have been rereleased several times, including on the Virtual Console , Super NES Classic Edition , and the classic games service on Nintendo Switch Online.
All Game Boy games are playable with the Super Game Boy add-on.
