Super Cassette Vision is a home console released by Epoch in Japan in 1984.

Cassete Vision, it's predecessor, was dominating the Japanese market until Nintendo launched the Famicom in 1983. Epoch tried to fight back with Cassette Vision Jr., a remodeling of Cassette Vision with much lower price. However, Famicom was dominating the market in 1984, when Epoch decided to launch Super Cassette Vision. Super Cassette Vision made a decent effort to get back the market superiority of the original model.

The console had rights from famous anime for it's games. Dragon Ball: Dragon Daihikyou was the first video game of this famous anime franchise that was ever released. Super Cassette Vision was launched also in Europe, in France more specifically, by ITMC under the Yeno branding with more than 16 of the 30 games of the Super Cassette Vision. A version of the system targeting the young female market, the Super Lady Cassette Vision, was also released. This version of the console came packed in a pink carrying case, alongside the game Milky Princess.

However, Super Cassette Vision didn't made it and in 1987 Epoch left the gaming market discontinuing Super Cassette Vision, with Famicom remaining the best selling home console in Japan.
