History

NES

The early history of NES emulation is vague, but there are some early emulators known to public.

  • Family Computer Emulator V0.35 for FM Towns, by "Haruhisa Udagawa", with file timestamps of December 12, 1990.
  • Pasofami for the FM Towns, with a release date of May 1, 1993 in its info file.
  • LandyNES by Alex Krasivsky, which seems became the base of iNES emulator. At least one beta version was released to the public, but discontinued after the release of NESticle. No release date known but likely mid to late 1990s.
  • Marat Fayzullin's iNES emulator is the first (or at least one of the first) emulator to use NES header format (also known as iNES format). The release date of first version is unknown but probably the same time around LandyNES.
  • NESticle (first version known as v0.2) was released on April 3, 1997. It was one of the first freeware NES emulators.
