Nintendo started selling its 16-bit cassette based system in 1991 and sold it for many years. The Super Nintendo introduced gaming’s 3D capabilities. The SNES was the best-selling 16-bit gaming system even though it came into the market after the 16-bit Sega Genesis system. The most popular SNES games include Super Mario World, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Super Metroid, Super Mario Kart, and Chrono Trigger.
