The Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) is a 16-bit console from the fourth generation of video game consoles. The console was launched as the Super Famicom in Japan on November 21, 1990 before later being released in North America (August 23, 1991) and Europe (June 1992) as the SNES. Later in its lifespan, the "SNES Jr." and Super Famicom Jr. revisions were released, offering a smaller form factor. A satellite modem add-on — the Satellaview — was released in Japan during 1995 with the ability to play games broadcast wirelessly and view free magazines. A handful of games could be played online through the XBAND service in the United States.
