Originally, it was intended for the NES to support online multiplayer - becoming the first home console to do so. This was however scrapped at the time as the telecommunications infrastructure in Japan and the U.S. could not support it on such a large scale. The Famicom Modem would release in Japan; however, it would not aim for this function (as was intended in development), but rather allow stock trading, horse race gambling, etc.
