Looking Back at the History of Nintendo...

Nintendo has roots dating back well over a century (yes, it's really that old), long before the advent of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) or Wii. The company was founded in 1889 by Japanese entrepreneur Fusajiro Yamauchi. At the time, however, it focused strictly on playing cards for a game called Hanafuda. Nintendo grew increasingly popular among the Hanafuda players, allowing Yamauchi to venture into other markets, including Taxis and hotels. It wasn't until the 1960s-1970s when Nintendo began toying with the idea of video games.

Nintendo's first attempt to enter the video game was met with mixed results. During the 1960s, it focused strictly on arcade machines, which were slowly but surely gaining momentum among mainstream use. In 1974, it secured the rights to distribute the Magnavox Odyssey video game console. But Nintendo executives knew that there was only so much they could do by "distributing" other companies' hardware, so they decided to develop their own video game system; thus, prompting the release of the handheld Game & Watch system.

With its newfound success in the video game industry, Nintendo began to develop and release several other systems, including the NES, SNES, Gameboy, Gameboy Advance, GameCube, Wii, Wii U, and more.
