Founded in 1889, Nintendo originally manufactured a deck for a traditional Japanese card game called hanafuda. Currently, the company is one of the largest in the world in the gaming market, focusing mainly on casual players.

Created by Fusajiro Yamauchi in Kyoto, Nintendo is one of the most traditional companies in Japan and has worked in the fields of transportation, hospitality, television, gastronomy until discovering that its business really was with games and electronics.

The first console manufactured by Nintendo was the Color TV-Game, which had several versions and sizes for different types of games, including the legendary Pong. This console was mainly focused on the Japanese market and sold about 3 million units.

The share of the world market came even in 1980 with the Game & Watch, Nintendo’s first handheld console. With monochrome screen and directional buttons, the Game & Watch has received 60 different games and sold over 43 million units.

Thanks to the Game & Watch, Nintendo discovered that directional buttons were ideal for consoles and patented the technology in 1983. Today, they are on almost every console and have made the company receive an Emmy for Technology and Engineering in 2013.

After the Game & Watch, the manufacturer followed with consoles that were successful around the world, such as the NES, Game Boy, SNES, Nintendo 64, Game Boy Color (and Advance), GameCube, Nintendo DS (and 3DS), Wii (and Wii U), until reaching today’s Nintendo Switch.

In addition to consoles, Nintendo is also successful in producing and distributing historical games such as the Donkey Kong, Mortal Kombat, Mario and Pokémon franchises, as well as the latest The Legend of Zelda, Super Mario Run and Animal Crossing.
