The Super Cassette Vision was released in 1984 as the successor to Epoch's Cassette Vision. It retailed in Japan for around
15,000 Yen. The system was also manufactured and distributed for Europe (particularly France) by a company called ITMC. In
Europe it was called the Yeno Super Cassette Vision.
The system sold fairly well initially with about 30 games made for the system in Japan. A large majority of the games were developed by Epoch. In France the sales of the Yeno continued fairly well with Epoch exporting 17 games to the European market. Their success stemmed only from the fact that it would take another year for Nintendo to debut their console to the UK market. Eventually, Nintendo would release their 8-bit beast, eventually be overshadowing both versions. The Super Cassette Vision soon disappeared from the market because the competition became too strong.
FACT: In 1985, Epoch decided to release a limited edition version called Lady Cassette Vision. The pink colored console came bundled with its own carrying case and a game called Milky Princess.
