On August 23, 1991 the Super Nintendo was welcomed into the world. It arrived late to the scene. Sega had started the 16-bit generation early in 1990. Though their hardware was inferior to Nintendo’s, it was there and lots of people had made the switch. Everyone knows that Nintendo leaned on the NES a little too long, but it was a phenomenon, and those are hard to let go of. Like many other console launches, the Super NES had a rough start. The 3DS can relate. But much like many of those rough starts, the Super Nintendo ended up becoming one of the, if not – the – greatest consoles to ever grace the modern gaming world.
