Super Nintendo Entertainment System
Wikipedia features a more in-depth article.
The Super Nintendo Entertainment System (Japanese: スーパーファミコン Super Famicom) is a 16-bit video game console created by Nintendo as its flagship hardware in the fourth generation of video game systems, and the successor of the Nintendo Entertainment System. The system was released in Japan in 1990, in the United States in 1991, and in Europe and Australia in 1992; it was succeeded in 1996 by the Nintendo 64. During its lifetime in Japan, the Super Famicom was supported by the Satellaview satellite modem broadcast add-on for the main console, streaming games and accompanying radio content to the console on a broadcasting schedule.
Three games in the Fire Emblem series were released for the Super Famicom in Japan, in addition to a series of four Satellaview broadcasts collectively known as BS Fire Emblem: Archanea War Chronicles; none of these games were ever released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System outside of Japan. The last of these games, Fire Emblem: Thracia 776, holds the distinction of being the last game ever released for the Super Famicom: while its initial release through the Nintendo Power flash cartridge service occurred in 1999, it later received a standard Super Famicom cartridge release on May 21st, 2000, as the final formal cartridge release for the console.
