Even though the Famicom Disk System was never released outside of Japan, this add-on to the Family Computer (Famicom) had a tremenedous impact on how games were developed for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES). If you've ever wondered why some titles asked for a password to continue your gaming session, while others allowed you to save your data via battery backup, look no further than this little red box.

The history of how the NES came to the US, and how it differs from the original Famicom, is wonderfully detailed in our ongoing video series! Check out the related videos below, or watch all of Season 1.
