The PC-8801 was a Zilog Z80-based home computer released by the Nippon Electric Company (NEC) in Japan in 1981. The PC-8801 was informally called the PC-88.

Nintendo licensed Hudson Soft to port some of Nintendo's Family Computer games, such as Golf, to home computers in Japan. Hudson Soft also created sequels to Mario Bros. called Mario Bros. Special and Punch Ball Mario Bros., a sequel to Donkey Kong 3 called Donkey Kong 3: Dai Gyakushū, and a unique Super Mario Bros. game for the computer, Super Mario Bros. Special. These games are not exclusive to the PC-8801 and can be found in other popular 8-bit home computers in Japan, such as the Sharp X1.
