What is the .SMC file type?

The .smc extension is related to the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES), a very popular hardware video gaming console marketed by Nintendo in 1990's. SNES was a 16-bit console with two controllers, 16-bit sound and graphics DSP's (Digital Signal Processor). SNES games were distributed as hardware ROM (Read-Only Memory) cartridges.

An .smc file is an exact digital copy of an original cartridge's ROM, a virtual game cartridge. SMC files are intended to be used with SNES software emulators that provide exact or almost-exact emulation of the SNES architecture. There are several well-established SNES emulators available for a number of desktop and mobile platforms.
