On November 21, 1990, the Super Nintendo was officially introduced to the Japanese public as the Super Famicom. A date that would forever be engraved in the hearts and souls of gamers worldwide. Following in the footsteps of the NES, whose universal success had definitively shaped the fate of the gaming industry, the Super Nintendo was a technological masterpiece, teeming with power and potential, and that still fascinates us to this very day. Across more than 620 pages richly illustrated with documents from the period, the two Super Nintendo Anthology volumes recount the life story of the Kyoto-based giant's wondrous 16-bit console and delve deep into its huge international games library. A work of reference.
A total of 1724 official titles were released on the Super Nintendo, and a specific amount of page space is dedicated to each one based on its quality and reputation. For example, The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past has earned itself a full page, whereas titles of lesser renown will be covered on a half-page or less. While most players have played or at least heard of the best titles (Super Metroid, StarFox (StarWing), Super Mario World, Chrono Trigger, Donkey Kong Country, etc.), many other lesser-known games are well worth our attention. This book presents all 1724 officially published games with detailed information including their release date, developer, publisher, genre, and a rating out of five, without forgetting the 50-odd after-market and canceled games.
