Originally founded in 1889, Nintendo began as a playing card company. Nintendo explored several different businesses in the 1950s and 1960s, but eventually found its niche in the electronic toy market. The company started with home video game hardware like the Color TV-Game and Game & Watch handhelds prior to the global success of the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1985.
These days Nintendo is synonymous with video games; hundreds of millions of players around the world have adopted its consoles. Six of the top 20 best-selling games of 2018 were Nintendo titles, while the Nintendo Switch became the fastest-selling video game console of the current generation.
