Nintendo (Japanese: 任天堂; Rōmaji: Nintendō) is a company based in Japan that develops and manufactures their own series of video games and consoles.
They were established as a card company in 1889, but got into gaming 90 years later turning into one of the 3 major players in the gaming industry. Its current rivals are Sony, Microsoft, Apple, and Google. Nintendo revived the North American video game industry after it crashed in 1983.
HistoryThe company, Nintendo, was originally founded on September 23rd, 1889, 94 years before they made a video game. The company was originally created to produce hanafuda cards for use in the Japanese playing card game of the same name.
In 1949, Hiroshi Yamauchi became president of the company and expanded the company into United States after arcade machines became popular. At first there wasn't much interest in Nintendo's products so Yamauchi asked one of his employees for help, Shigeru Miyamoto who then went on to create the best-seller Donkey Kong.
Since then the company has primarily focused on creating video games. Soon after creating Donkey Kong, Nintendo created the handheld console Game & Watch followed by the NES (Famicom in Japan).
