System- Snes - Super Nintendo
Information Around 1988 Nintendo was
still enjoying the success of its NES / Famicom system
and didnt see no rush in jumping on the 16-bit bandwagon.
However the NEC PCengine / Turbografix in Japan, and the Sega
Genesis in the US were beginning to dominate the videogame
The jump to 16-bit was no real surprise. Originally Nintendo
wanted the Famicom to be 16-bit, but resources at the time
were too expensive. The Super Famicom was released in November
1989, and basically took over 80 percent of the Japanese market
once established. They still had a lot of ground to cover
to catch up with the other 16-bit systems. The system itself
was quite impressive introducing scaling and rotation effects
(the famous Mode 7) that could not be duplicated on the other
systems. Nintendo knew they also needed more 3rd Party support.
They learned their lesson of placing restrictions on developers
who wished to make games for other platforms.
