It is hard to believe it but Nintendo officially turns 129 today! They company has a long, storied past; originally starting out making hanafuda cards in 1889. They produced cards for quite some time but eventually started dabbling in things like love hotels, a taxi service, love tester, and other toys before eventually taking a stab in the newly emerging video game industry. That is a gable that this Nintendo fan is glad they made! If you haven’t read up on their history, you should! It is a very intriguing tale!
Here is to another 129 years! I really hope future generations will be enjoying Nintendo consoles and games!
