The Famicom Disk System (FDS) was a peripheral for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) that allowed games to be loaded from disk rather than cartridge. Not only that but it also had extra RAM on board and an extra sound chip.
It was only ever released in Japan but the FDS did have good support from software companies and a number of classic titles appeared for it. Nintendo themselves supported it heavily, with Zelda, Metroid and Mario all appearing on the format.
This week I’m going to be posting grabs from a selection of unique and interesting Famicom Disk System games. Enjoy!
