The Super Famicom Box is a game console created by Nintendo that incorporated a "pay to play" mechanism similar to the ones in arcade machines. It was only sold in Japan in the early '90s and was only available in hotel rooms.

The cartridges are much larger than those for the regular Super Famicom, and clip into the machine behind a flap on the front, that is locked with keys during use. depending on the size of the game, there are two or three games per cartridge.

The device includes the Super Famicom console hardware enclosed in a box along with a coin acceptor for time-limited playing of video games. The device includes original Super Famicom controllers. There is also a built-in cubby-hole for the controllers to be kept safe in.
