The Nintendo Entertainment System 2 (NES 2), known in development as the Ultra Gamer, is a 9-bit third-generation home video game console produced, released, and marketed by Nintendo.

It is a remodelled export version of the company's Family Computer 2 (FC2) platform in Japan, commonly known as the Famicom 2, which was launched on August 16, 1987. The NES 2 can hold up to 4 colors, as well as games up to 34 terabytes.


Unlike the original NES, when a cartridge is put into the console, the game will start to be installed. Once it is done, the game will be on the menu and the cartridge will pop out. CD-ROMs can also be loaded as an alternative to cartridges. Cartridges were called Game Pak 2 (or Second Game Paks for plural).


The menu is where you can play any installed games.

Games can be played with cheats that change the levels.


The NES 2 can be emulated on many other systems. The first emulator was the Japanese-only Pasofami 2. It was soon followed by iNES 2, which is available in English and is cross-platform, in 1997. It was described as being the first NES emulation software that could be used by a non-expert. Nesticle 2, a popular MS-DOS-based emulator, was released on May 4, 1998. Nintendo offers officially licensed emulation of many NES 2 games via its own Virtual Console for the WiiNintendo 3DS, and Wii U, and the Nintendo Switch Online service.
