ON THIS DAY, 1992...

On the 11th of April 1992, the SNES was released in the UK and Ireland.

SNES, or Super Nintendo Entertainment System, is a popular home video game console that was released by Nintendo in 1990. It was the successor to the original Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) and was designed to compete with other gaming consoles of the time, such as the Sega Genesis.

The SNES was known for its 16-bit graphics and sound, which were a significant improvement over the 8-bit capabilities of the NES. It also featured a wide range of popular games, including classics like Super Mario World, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, and Super Metroid.

One of the most significant advancements of the SNES was its use of Mode 7 graphics, which allowed for a 3D-like effect in certain games, such as F-Zero and Super Mario Kart.

The SNES remained popular throughout the 1990s and is still beloved by many gamers today. It is considered a classic console and is often emulated on modern devices, such as computers and smartphones.
