Brief History: Nintendo began Nintendo Koppai, a small trading card company, and shifted between several industries seeking its niche until 1974, when it hit upon electronic gaming. The Color TV Game was one of the first, leading into the arcade game EVR Race, and then into the handheld Game & Watch devices. The Game & Watch earned Nintendo worldwide recognition as a rapidly growing video game industry. The Famicom, also called the Nintendo Entertainment System outside of Japan, was launched in 1983, providing a console capable of playing multiple game cartridges. The NES played host to gaming classics like Super Mario Bros., Donkey Kong, and Megaman.

From then onto glory, as it were. Today, Nintendo is a multi-billion dollar gaming industry renowned worldwide for its classics, old and new, ranging from PC games to handhelds and console games.
