The SNES Mouse and Mousepad

The Super NES Mouse (スーパーファミコンマウス Sūpā Famikon Mausu?, Super Famicom Mouse) is a peripheral created by Nintendo for the Super Famicom/SNES.[1] It was first released on July 14, 1992 in Japan and in other regions later that year. Originally designed for use with the game Mario Paint, the Super Famicom/SNES Mouse was sold in a bundle with the game and included a plastic mouse pad. Soon after its introduction, several other titles were released with the Mouse support.

Although this device closely resembles and mimics the functionality of a two-button computer mouse, it was smaller than most computer mice of the time and had a significantly shorter cord than the standard Super NES controller.

List of compatible games[edit]

The Super Famicom/SNES Mouse was supported by many games during its lifetime, and even by the Super Game Boy accessory.[2] Certain games released after the Mouse—such as Super Mario All-Stars, Tetris & Dr. Mario, the original SNES Donkey Kong Country trilogy and Kirby Super Star—display a warning message indicating that the mouse is incompatible with that game.

This is an incomplete list of games that support the accessory:
