Happy Birthday Nintendo! My Top 25

Wednesday, September 23, 2009

Believe it or not, today marks the 120th birthday for Nintendo.

You may not realize that Nintendo started out as a Japanese playing card company. The company still holds on to those roots in the form of Pokemon, but the face of the company has transformed to an Italian plumber, along with a Spock-like eared adventure hero, and a woman who wears a suit of armor that packs an arm cannon.

Way back on September 23, 1889, a businessman in Kyoto named Fusajiro Yamauchi started a company called “Nintendo Koppai” to manufacture a type of Japanese playing card, called hanafuda. In the six-score years since, while Nintendo still makes playing cards in Japan, the company has become slightly better-known for its line of electronics.
