The Nintendo Entertainment System was the first post-crash gaming console to be released in the United States. The system was launched with 18 games in select markets in October of 1985, with a full national release in June of the following year. The system was available in 2 flavors. The “Control Deck” set came bundled with two controllers and a copy of Super Mario Bros, while the more expensive “Deluxe Set” included a “Zapper” light gun and “R.O.B.” the robot, along with the games Duck Hunt and Gyromite. Numerous franchises still being produced today, including Super Mario Bros., Mega Man, Castlevania, The Legend of Zelda, and Final Fantasy originated on the NES, as did Nintendo Power magazine. The last licensed game was released in 1994 and the system was officially discontinued the following year, giving the system a 10 year life span in North America. Selling over 60 million units worldwide, the NES was a staple of the Generation X childhood and is generally credited with reinvigorating the home console market.
