The Super Nintendo Entertainment System was Nintendo's second home console, reaching North America in 1991. The SNES was the best-selling 16-bit system remaining popular, even while 32-bit consoles were being introduced. Despite coming to market after the Sega Genesis, its smaller library of games were loved by fans, especially Super Mario World, which was bundled with the system.
