Nintendo Is Now 127 Years Old

On September 23rd, 1889, Nintendo was founded. That day has arrived, especially for those in eastern regions of the world, meaning that Nintendo is now 127 years old. The man who founded Nintendo was Fusajiro Yamauchi. If the last name sounds familiar, that’s because his grandson is Hiroshi Yamauchi, who was Nintendo’s third president, joining in 1949 and stepping down in 2002. Video games clearly didn’t exist at the time, but Nintendo did produce some entertainment, and that was handmade hanafuda playing cards. They were popular, and still are. Nintendo still makes playing cards in Japan, and they’ve even organized their own contract bridge tournament called the Nintendo Cup. The realization that playing cards had limited potential is what led the company to pursue other areas of business, eventually turning to video games in the 1970s. It was during that decade, specifically 1975, that Nintendo adopted the logo that they continue to use today. As for Nintendo’s name, the word “Nintendo” is Japanese. Translated to English, “Nintendo” means “leave luck to heaven”.

Happy birthday, Nintendo!
