How it all started

Our love of Nintendo started where many people began their gaming career - with the launch of the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) in 1985. Since then, every system that Nintendo has ever launched we have eagerly played and passionately enjoyed. From the handhelds like the Gameboy and Nintendo DS to the groundbreaking Super Nintendo, through the amazing Nintendo 64 and Gamecube years, Nintendo has never let us down as fans or as gamers! And who can forget how Nintendo changed the face of gaming with the Nintendo Wii and again now with the Nintendo Switch! Nintendo continues to keep us excited for what they will do next!

More about Nintendo...

Nintendo Co., Ltd. is a Japanese multinational consumer electronics and video game company headquartered in Kyoto. Nintendo is one of the world's largest video game companies by market capitalization, creating some of the best-known and top-selling video game franchises, such as Mario, The Legend of Zelda, and Pokémon. 

 Nintendo was founded as a card company by Fusajiro Yamauchi on September 23, 1889. Based in Kyoto, the business produced and marketed a playing card game called "Hanafuda". The handmade cards soon became popular, and Yamauchi hired assistants to mass-produce cards to satisfy demand.  In 1949, the company adopted the name Nintendo Karuta Co., Ltd., doing business as The Nintendo Playing Card Co. outside Japan. Nintendo continues to manufacture playing cards in Japan and organizes its own contract bridge tournament called the "Nintendo Cup". The word Nintendo can be translated as "leave luck to heaven", or alternatively as "the temple of free hanafuda".  

 By 1963, the company had tried several small niche businesses, such as cab services and love hotels. Abandoning previous ventures in favor of toys in the 1960s, Nintendo then developed into a video game company in the 1970s, ultimately becoming one of the most influential in the industry and Japan's third most-valuable company with a market value of over $85 billion. From 1992 until 2016, Nintendo was also the majority shareholder of Major League Baseball's Seattle Mariners.

More about Mario...

Mario (Japanese: マリオ Hepburn: Mario, [ma.ɾʲi.o]) (English: /ˈmɑːrioʊ/; Italian: [ˈmaːrjo]) is a fictional character in the Mario video game franchise, owned by Nintendo and created by Japanese video game designer Shigeru Miyamoto. Serving as the company's mascot and the eponymous protagonist of the series, Mario has appeared in over 200 video games since his creation. Depicted as a short, pudgy, Italian plumber who resides in the Mushroom Kingdom, his adventures generally center upon rescuing Princess Peach from the Koopa villain Bowser. His younger brother and sidekick is Luigi.   

The Mario franchise is the best-selling video game franchise of all time. Over 210 million units of the overall Mario series of games have been sold. Outside of the Super Mario platform series, other Mario genres include the Mario Kart racing series, sports games such as the Mario Tennis and Mario Golf series, role-playing games such as Super Mario RPG and Paper Mario, and educational games such as Mario Is Missing!, Mario's Time Machine and Mario Teaches Typing. The franchise has branched into several mediums, including television shows, film, comics, and licensed merchandise. Since 1990, Mario has been voiced by Charles Martinet.
