    Founded in 1889 by Fusajiro Yamauchi, Nintendo originally produced handmade hanafuda playing cards but it was in 1983 when Nintendo introduced the NES that it became a household name in gaming. Over the course of the next two years, it almost single-handedly revitalized the video game industry. Selling over 60 million units, people brought games like Mario and Zelda into their homes for the first time on the NES.

    History:
    The worldwide pioneer in the creation of interactive entertainment, Nintendo Co., Ltd., of Kyoto, Japan, manufactures and markets hardware and software for its Wii U and Wii home consoles, Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo DS family of portable systems.
