Nintendo was founded in 1889. The business produced and marketed Hanafuda cards.
Satoru Iwata is the current President & C.E.O. The founder of Nintendo, Fusajiro Yamauchi, died in January of 1940.
Nintendo started as a small Japanese business by Fusajiro Yamauchi on September 23, 1889 as Nintendo Koppai. Based in Kyoto, Japan, the business produced and marketed a playin…g card game called Hanafuda. In recognition of its card-playing roots, the name "Nintendo" means "leave luck to heaven". The cards, which were all handmade, soon began to gain popularity, and Yamauchi had to hire assistants to mass produce cards to keep up with demand. Fusajiro Yamauchi did not have a son to take over the family business. Following common Japanese tradition, he adopted his son-in-law, Sekiryo Kaneda (Sekiryo Yamauchi, after the marriage). In 1929, Yamauchi retired from the company and allowed Sekiryo Yamauchi to take over the company as president. In 1933, Sekiryo Yamauchi established a joint venture with another company and renamed the company Yamauchi Nintendo & Company. In 1947, Sekiryo established the company Marufuku Company, Ltd., to distribute the Hanafuda cards, as well as several other brands of cards that had been introduced by Nintendo. Sekiryo Yamauchi also had only daughters, so again his son-in-law (Shikanojo Inaba, renamed Shikanojo Yamauchi) was adopted into the family. Shikanojo never became president because he left his family. Subsequently, his son Hiroshi was brought up by his grandparents. Hiroshi later took over the company instead of his father. Then in 1977 Nintendo released their first game console: The Nintendo Color TV 6. Then in 1980 Nintendo released the first handheld console EVER: The Game & Watch. They have come a long way since then, haven't they?

The Nintendo Switch is the new console from Nintendo. It soundslike a really good mix between powerful home console and portablehandheld system. We don't know everything about… it yet (as ofOctober 2016), because it isn't out until March 2017, but here aresome things that we do know: . The console uses cartridges and not discs. This is aninteresting move by Nintendo, and there are good and bad thingsabout this. I like cartridges better myself, because they don'tseem to get scratched up or accidentally put in a movie caseinstead, but it is unfortunate that you won't be able to play thediscs from older Nintendo consoles. On the other hand, we might beable to play all the older games that you bought digitally throughthe Nintendo store. . The console has a dock that you can hook up to your TV. Ifthere is compatibility with 3DS games (which has not beendetermined), or even if you can just download the new Sun or Moononto it, that means that we can play a real main series Pokemongame on the big screen for the first time since XD. That ishuge. . Switch has different configurations depending on what you aredoing. You can use the detachable controllers to make a two-handedcontroller, to use as one-handed controllers, or with the screen asa handheld. . Switch will support Amiibo figures, which means games like LEGODimensions will likely work on it.
