By the early 1980s, Nintendo had found success in arcade games, including the smash hit Donkey Kong. Introduced first in Japan in 1983, the Famicom became the best-selling console of its time. Two years later, the Famicom was introduced to the US as the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) where it was a blockbuster product. Unlike the NES, the Famicom had several peripherals available, including a modem, keyboard and disk drive system that allowed players to save games.
