1. 1985 - Nintendo Entertainment System (NES)

Answer: Super Mario Bros.

Marketed in North America as the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES), this console was first released in Japan in 1983 under the name Famicom, after which it was redesigned and released on the North American Market on October 18, 1985.

As for "Super Mario Bros.," the main character first appeared in the "Donkey Kong" arcade game in 1981, and then had his own title (with Luigi) with 1983's "Mario Bros." arcade game. With the release of the NES console, Mario took on a new and better existence, launching a video game franchise that has become one of the most popular, ever (second only to Pokémon). "Super Mario Bros." was officially released first in Japan (September 1985) for the Famicom console, but came out a month later in North America for the NES release.

The other Mario franchise games made for the NES included (N.A. release dates):

"Mario Bros." (original arcade version 1983, NES version Jun. 23, 1986)
"Super Mario Bros. 2" (Oct. 9, 1988)

Answer: Super Mario Land

The original black and white Nintendo Game Boy was first released in Japan in April of 1989, but it was not long before it also hit the shelves in North America, with a release date of July 31.

It happened along the same lines as with the NES platform, with the game originally released in Japan, then in the North America market on the same date as the Game Boy release.
