25th anniversay or the North American release of the SNES

Beitrag von Evan_G » 21. August 2016, 18:19

So, I made a big article on my research to pinpoint the timing of the release of the SNES in the US. Although the official launch date was September 9th, 1991, it actually came out several weeks earlier in some places like California. I also have pinpointed 11 games that were likely launch titles. Enjoy!

Amazing findings, thanks a lot, Evan. :nice:

What I've always been curious about though is whether there was some sort of mail-order option for the SNES in North America, like Nintendo has offered for so many other products later on (e.g. the GameCube component cable)? Then again, 'twas the early 1990s, so ... probably not. :wink:

Oh, there most certainly was, but I never took part.
