The Famicom is where many of Nintendo’s most iconic franchises got their start. The system, which was eventually localized as the NES, saw the early open exploration of the original Zelda, the smooth scrolling Super Mario Bros., tense atmosphere in Metroid, and much more besides.
This past July saw the original Famicom celebrate its 40th anniversary and as a result Nintendo has been sharing lavishly produced websites for all of its first party games. Right now 1983 through 1986 are covered, meaning stylish pages for everything from Pinball to Balloon Fight, and even everyone’s favorite Robotic Operating Buddy.
Each page is unique and decorated with high-quality assets, including transparent image files of some rare or obscure artwork of beloved characters. Just look at this high-res Link!
Nintendo will be updating the Famicom anniversary website regularly so be sure to keep checking back to experience history!
