Company properties

General info :
Nintendo Co., Ltd. is a Japanese multinational consumer electronics and software company headquartered in Kyoto, Japan.
Nintendo is the world's largest video game company by revenue.
Founded on September 23, 1889, by Fusajiro Yamauchi, it originally produced handmade hanafuda playing cards.
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.
Nintendo of America is also the majority owner of Major League Baseball's Seattle Mariners.
The word Nintendo can be roughly translated from Japanese to English as "leave luck to heaven".
The company is known for creating some of the most iconic video game franchises, including Mario, Pokémon, and The Legend of Zelda.
