The Nintendo Entertainment System (often abbreviated as NES) is an 8-bit video game console that was released by Nintendo in North America, Brazil, Europe, and Australia in 1985. In Japan (where it was first launched in 1983), it was released as the Family Computer (ファミリーコンピュータ Famirī Konpyūta?, also known as the Famicom (ファミコン Famikon?), or simply FC for short). In Southern Asia, it was known as the Tata Famicom. The best-selling gaming console of its time, the NES helped revitalize the US video game industry following the video game crash of 1983, and set the standard for subsequent consoles in everything from game design to controller layout.
