The Super Nintendo was Nintendo's second home console, following the Nintendo Entertainment System. Released in the US in August 1991, it's main competitor was the Sega Genesis. In April 1992, both consoles were pretty even in the race. Enter Mortal Kombat. Nintendo stuck to its strict censorship rules and would not allow blood or the graphic Mortal Kombat finishing moves. Sega did and the Genesis pulled away, with Mortal Kombat selling three times as many cartridges on the Sega system. Around this time, under government oppression pressure, the IDSA was formed and a video game rating system was created. At that time, Nintendo decided its censorship policies were no longer needed. In the end, approximately 720 licensed titles were released for the SNES system. That total does not include unlicensed religious games that were released. The SNES is still considered one of the best consoles, even to this day...

Super Nintendo launch titles: F-Zero, Gradius III, Pilotwings, and SimCity.
